Carricula: Learning. Not Lectures
On August 1st, 2014, Carricula.com was 'soft-launched' to an eager & excited audience yearning for a new model in online learning. The same day MTV launched, 33 years ago.
"Learning. Not Lectures." accuratley describes the Carricula difference. Carricula's model is one of "Teacher Empowerment" according to Founder Rich Carr.
While the difference in Carricula's innovative approach for Instructors itself is game-changing (There are no fees, subscriptions or charges upfront to any 'hand-picked' Instructor. When a student Enrolls, the Instructor is paid 80% of the course Enrollment, Carricula receives 20% to cover all hosting, development, presentation, and other essential services), the true industry altering piece is the ability to embed the instructors course, anywhere on any platform...just like YouTube.

"The online education universe has been limiting at best for Instructors." according to Carr. "The MOOCs have focused all attention and investments in K-12 and College education courses. Carricula focuses on the content rich dynamic of specific skills AFTER formal education avenues."
