And the foundation is now offering a path to college credit for its offerings by partnering with two nontraditional players in higher education – Excelsior College and StraighterLine.

The professors scoured the web for free Open Education Resources (OER), but also created video lectures and tests. “I was able to develop my own material,” said Kevin Moquin, who created a business law course for Saylor.

How long before they break through? Colorado State University’s Global Campus will now accept credit from Udacity, an online startup whose founders believe that a “university-level education can be both high quality and low cost”.
