What side of change are you planning to be on in the education industry of the future?

Education is an industry that really impacts on peoples lives. Along with health and law enforcement; it is an industry that can have a far reaching impact on people if an education institution or the system that controls it does not maintain the highest of ethical standards. 

We at ACS Distance Education have always believed that as an education institution, we have a moral and ethical responsibility to be very risk averse. 
 

All too often, people have confused ideas about education, learning, recognition & accreditation.

Learning matters a lot today

Qualifications are less important; unless you want to do something that requires a legal license; in which case you can frequently be examined and become licensed after you gain the learning anyway.
 

"Accreditation too Onerous and Expensive

The demands of up to 100 course accrediting agencies are imposing an "onerous and extremely expensive" burden on universities and other higher education providers, a new report to federal government finds" (Quote from Higher Education supplement of The Australian Newspaper, November 8, 2017)

 
Our IT staff have created a new interactive tool to enable students to create a unique online course -to suit their specific needs and set you apart from everyone else. See https://www.acsedu.com/buildyourown.aspx and have a play to see what is possible.

Potentially, with many hundreds of modules in the mix, every student can create a different configuration of studies for a qualification, giving every graduate a unique position with their skills set.
 

How to sell a course or book - sell the dream rather than the course or book.

"Most people in business sell things. When you sell things, you often need to compete on price. I sell dreams though because people never look at the cost when they are buying a dream. The trick is to turn your product or service into a dream"
