More people have learned about online education in the past few weeks than they probably did during the last 10 years. At least we all now know the importance of online learning.
So now would be a good time once again to introduce the idea of drop-in centers for adult education.
The concept is very simple. Just imagine a place such as a library where any adult can go to learn computer skills so as to access a wide variety of online classes.
To facilitate the education of these students' education, there could be paid staff who act as tutors. Now connect this process up throughout the whole city. In this way Community College classes, literacy classes at the libraries and community centers - all become connected and even interdependent.
I suspect that funding for such a project would be much easier to get than if each program were to "go it alone".
In any case, I personally think it is an idea whose time has come - for sure this time.
