Those Masterclass videos are coming after higher education.
Reported by EdSurge, the founder behind those celebrity video courses you see advertised in your Facebook feed is now offering university-level courses through a new company called Outlier.
Outlier has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh to ensure the credits earned are transferable, and each course costs $400 and is refunded if you don’t pass.
The takeaway? The visual aesthetic and storytelling of what online education can be is getting taken up a notch. Whether that translates into higher outcomes, or sets a new aesthetic bar we all start chasing, waits to be seen.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
