OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
Harvard University and MIT will be offering courses available online for free through the edX platform, and are hoping that other universities will follow suit.
While students won’t be able to claim they actually took Harvard or MIT courses, the information taught and the materials will be the same as those provided by the prestigious universities – giving everyone affordable access to a high quality education.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
Making the highest quality educations available online gives everyone an opportunity to learn from the best in spite of the high cost of college, not just the select few who are admitted to and can afford the top schools
OUR TIME OPINION
In an age of rapidly increased tuition, online education can make a high quality education affordable and accessible to millions of young Americans.
