Do you think there is a benefit in providing a percentage of courses within every college free and online?

With the rising of educational costs and the competitiveness, the socioeconomic gap will continue to be wider unless there is a philanthropic mandate post-graduation to ensure that generations to come are not existing with a disconnected view of society and more importantly people that can contribute to our overall progression.

  • Sep 18 2012: I agree that it should be free but not online. because, you could people registering for the courses, but let other do it for them.
    if it's going to be online; then stringent measures have to be put in place to make sure all rules and regulations on those courses are followed.
