California’s newest public college is beginning an experiment this fall that could change how higher education serves a coveted class of students: working adults without degrees.┬áCalled Calbright, the free online community college is starting slow, offering noncredit classes with curriculum designed to teach skills requested by area companies.┬áBut less than a month before it is expected to open, Calbright is raising more questions than it has answered. Those include how it will mesh with California’s existing 114 community colleges, the extent to which it will be able to reach the underserved students it is targeting and whether it will impact online education for working adults beyond the state.
