Experiment: Colleges Partner With Training Boot Camps And Online Course Providers (Educational Quality Through Innovative Partnerships)

Colleges Partner with Training Boot Camps and Online Course Providers for Federal Experiment

Danielle Douglas-Gabriel | August 16, 2016

Eight colleges will team up with companies that run computer coding boot camps or online courses for an experiment that lets students pay for nontraditional training programs with federal grants and loans, the Education Department said Tuesday.
Short-term courses, such as coding boot camps, have become a popular model for acquiring skills and credentials without spending years in school, yet they’ve only been available to people who can afford  thousands of dollars for six-week classes. The objective of the experiment, dubbed the Educational Quality through Innovative Partnerships, is to provide people with modest means access to innovative education and to ensure that they receive quality training.
