The Education Forum: an Introduction

Discussions about how to access the college experience that works for you — affordably.


Welcome to Education Forum. I’m happy to have you here.

Every day, there is something written about how unaffordable college is, or how hard it can be to get into school if you aren’t a traditional student with good test scores. Maybe schools near you aren’t what you want – or need – and you don’t know what to do next. Well, I hope we can help. Actually, I know we can. That’s what we’re going to talk about, and I’m happy to take your questions and answer them the best that I can!

Education Forum and theEduForum.com were founded because we are passionate about education. About options for your career or for your kid’s future. We knew there’s a big problem. We knew college courses can be too expensive and too complicated to find. We knew it could be – had to be – simpler.

There is a simple explanation for challenges facing higher education. For more than 100 years, many schools have succeeded by making it more difficult to enroll. Charging more has not hurt enrollment. People go into debt to pursue their career and education goals – with no accountability for the schools. That doesn’t make it right, so we created a new vision for higher education.

We opened a marketplace that matches you with online courses. Where you live doesn’t matter, as long as you have internet access. We created a universal non-degree application that all our schools agree to use, enrolling students at the time of purchase. We’re able to provide learners around the world with access to courses they want when they want them. We believe that higher education belongs to everyone who wants to try one course or an entire degree.  Everyone deserves that chance.

We also believe that in a time when problems are complex, when questions are many, and when answers are elusive, there is one response that is always true:

LEARN MORE.

Learn more to help your career. Learn more to get the facts. Learn more to help your family. Learn more to help change the world. That’s what I hope the Education Forum will do – open the door to higher education for you.

Education should not be a matter of where you live or when you can be on a campus. Education is an equalizer like none other, and there shouldn’t be anything complicated about it.

LEARN MORE and change your world.
