On-Demand Micro-Credits: A New Paradigm for Higher Ed

it is highly espoused that the monopoly of higher education is damaging students credit and future ability to repay student loans. financing college is an expense similar to a home mortgage or car loan, with the capacity for the federal government to extort collection even during insolvency. a new paradigm for these clunky, mini-marts of employment and access to higher social stratification is the premise of a micro-credit. these programs use search engine software such as the one listed below to assemble university scholarly experts with their peers and may even offer occupations to their grad students through a google search engine type of interface relying on expertise-locator search terms. micro-credits or micro-terms are thus possible ostensibly providing educational specialization for an immediate job with quick turnaround time, as short as a week. my software indexes the websites of every accredited university in the country by expert and email providing an environment for managing scholarly inventory with ease, alleviating the common modern financial burden and expense of longer term 4-year universities and graduate schools.

the code below demonstrates this approach by parahosting lists of scholarly personnel:

  1. one of my main concerns with higher ed is that so many students finance a 4 or more year course in undergrad or grad and the whims of the market result in making them unemployable with a exorbitant debt burden for which they assumed a quite of bit of risk with extensibly superficial degrees of university training where they may be better off financing a car and working for uber.

  2. the code listed above is intended for demonstrative purposes. a more robust usage would be netowl extractor, used by domestic intelligence to track entities on the internet. you would essentially run that on the accredited university list website in schema.sql above

  3. on-demand training could resemble corporate training instead of a long-winded educational pursuit a short “micro-term” for immediate job placement at a fraction of the cost

  5. i am considering developing an app that helps students of foreign languages have conversations with people in language. part of a subset of online software suites that transform the education paradigm by offering “micro-credits” in any field in a database queryable by keyword. consider, for example, scanning through profiles of an online group for keywords with an option to freelance or hire a “1-on-1” peer-based online education paradigm based on an index extracted from the website of every university in the country. compensation is an issue, i do not expect experts to socialize for free but am considering scholarly subjects in a delivery-mechanism like uber where $15 in a on-demand call-center format to be negotiable. an initial finding is that learning foreign languages are well-suited for this platform where already facebook users seek to expand the experience of their culture by connecting to people from other countries and nationalities.
