Guide for the Education Do-It-Yourselfer

August 3, 2011

Anya Kamenetz, whose 2010 book DIY U heralded the "edupunks" who were seeking alternatives to higher education and the entrepreneurs who aimed to provide those alternatives, has published a new book (downloadable free) designed as a practical guidebook to navigate the nontraditional pathways to higher learning. The book -- which Kamenetz calls "the first ever sponsored" by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation -- lays out the many sources of content and (to the extent practicable) credentials that can be found online to help create a "personalized path to an affordable credential using the latest innovative tools and organizations."
