Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology
A new two-year online college opening in January 2019 promises to instill the "future-proofed" skills and knowledge that students need to excel in jobs that aren't being displaced by automation.
Intended for working adults in the United States, Foundry College will be granting free tuition for the entire two years for its first cohort. After that, the cost will be $1,000 per class or $6,000 per year.
The school also will use the competency model. It's being launched by Stephen Kosslyn, former chair of the Department of Psychology and dean of Social Science at Harvard. Kosslyn also is the founding dean of Minerva Schools.
