New Merger Wants to Create ‘WeWork for Education’ Via Digital Badges and Mini-Campuses
OCTOBER 23, 2018
We think this will be the first real opportunity to build out fully robust pathways for young people into college and career, where the pathways begin with badges [from LRNG] and end with college credit [from SNHU],” predicts Connie Yowell, CEO of LRNG. LRNG is a nonprofit that lets students earn badges through partnerships with businesses and community organizations. Birmingham will be ground zero for their learning and workforce model. Today, badges don’t count as credit.
