Gov. Jerry Brown, delivering remarks to the California Community Colleges Board of Governor in Sacramento on Monday, continued to push his plan to deliver a new type of online community college for California’s working adults. Brown, a Democrat, also shared details of the advances the state has made toward designing the college, which aims to be infinitely scalable. The office of California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley in previous months has convened “Future of Work” meet-ups to determine how emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), and new trends, such as the rise of the gig economy, are affecting the current workforce and shaping future opportunities. Using the feedback generated from these meetings, the chancellor’s office is working to determine education and training needs of potential adult learners across California.
