MOOC Paths directory – alternatives to a college programs of study. did a new step towards changes in higher education. We released the Paths directory.

pathdirectoryIn the directory there will be published paths to get education degree using MOOCs and online courses. We will publish paths that can be used as replacement of traditional college programs of study.

This tool is created for people who want to get higher education of same level as in college but for free or for cheap price. Every course in a path from the directory is alternative to a course from traditional college program of study. So, if you follow a path from the directory you will get same knowledges as a traditional college students get.

For now we have only 3 paths to achive alternative education to bachelor degree in AccountingSoftware DevelopmentApplied Mathematics.

We will continue to create new paths using courses from the directory and different MOOCs vendors.

Every path from the directory can be applied to a personal education path and a student can follow it. To start folowing a path you need to be registered on as a student.

Soon we will release additional tool for our users. It will be a Path builder to share your paths with the community. This will be similar to My Path tool but will allow to create a path in the format to be published in the Paths directory. So anyone can help to extend count of allowed paths for different specialities and help more people to get higher education for free.

Also we will add comments and ratings for paths in the directory. So if there are more then one path for same degree then it will be possible to choose what is better according to ratings, comments, information about who also follows a path etc.

If you want to be notified when we complete this tool then follow us in social networks or subscribe for newsletter on the contacts page.

  2. The degree is no awarded.
    The idea is a person learns courses from a path and saves learning history in a personal education passport. Then use the passport to show own education level as part of a CV or resume.
    For now, this depends how an education passport is perceived by a potential employer.
