“We are providing to the learner the ability to affordably, flexibly and in a personalized way get the education that they want,” explained Nurit Sonnenschein, the Center for Educational Measurement general manager at Excelsior College, It’s called a CourXam. Excelsior College teamed up with Cengage Learning to create college credit worthy exams that offer more flexibility than standard online courses. “We have these pacing guides right in the welcome section of every product that says, ‘Do you have six weeks to do this do you want to do this in 12 weeks,'” noted Sonnenschein. Split up into modules, complete with readings, activities and quizzes, the CourXam also breaks down how much time each lesson will take to complete, allowing you to choose what you learn and when you learn it.
