Description

Open College at Kaplan University (OC@KU) is focused on supporting adult learners in their educational journey. OC@KU provides adult students the opportunity to earn college credit through various assessments including the assessment of prior learning. This may sound like business-as-normal however, in this case, this initiative was placed in the ‘open’ environment, allowing learners to browse and consume the course and ePortfolio platform at no charge at their own pace. Launched in June 2013, OC@KU’s first course, the Learning Recognition Course (LRC100), yielded 1,200 participants by year end. The success of the course is attributed to a personalized learning concierge service combined with an open environment. Being the first of its kind in an ‘open’ environment, the LRC100 provides learners with a suite of services that meet an individual’s career and academic goals.
