– Capella was mentioned in Paul Fain’s piece today in Inside Higher Ed for our participation in the Gate’s Foundation study on adaptive learning.
-Jamie Merisotis, CEO/President of Lumina Foundation, shares his thoughts in the Huffington Post about Competency-Based Learning.
-Chronicle of Higher Education: Under California Bill, faculty-free colleges would award exam-based degrees
-Chronicle of Higher Education: To fix financial aid, first try to understand it
