Non-accredited education providers have been able to obtain useful data about student success and positive student learning outcomes that have led to adaptations in the design and delivery of courses. ACE has selected six course providers to join the Alternative Credit Project™, all of whom offer either low- or no-cost courses online.
These providers will put forth roughly 130 courses collectively to undergo the ACE CREDIT recommendation process. Courses that receive a credit recommendation will be included in the alternative credit ecosystem this project will create. Courses from these providers will meet stringent quality and instructional design criteria that lead to positive learning outcomes for online students.
