Transcript: Western Governors University Competency-based degree programs instead of credit hours Online education with a strong focus on mentorship Affordability at the center of the mission. Focus on adult learners and their need for flexibility. Western Governors University as an example of the future of higher education? What is WGU doing differently? Student population of WGU Background on Western Governors University Founded in 1997 by governors of Western states to respond to rapidly growing educational needs of the public. Non-profit university serving 35,000 distance-learners Four colleges offering bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to in 55 disciplines. Fully online, operating five branch "campuses" in Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. WGU seems to tick all the right boxes on what today's modern students, parents and education specialists are looking for in a university: affordable, flexible, online and focused on adult-learners. With the endorsement from the secretary of education, and the quick proliferation of branch "campuses", it seems the WGU model is here to stay. It's efficient and focused on outcomes and isn't tied down to the traditional paradigms of higher education. Students will be able to take advantage of what they know from previous educational or work experiences and prove their knowledge and skills through competency assessments. Allows students to save time and money as they can complete assessments at a flexible pace instead at a pre-determined semester schedule. Mostly adult-learners who work while they complete their studies. Most have some college experience before enrolling at WGU. Average age of learners is 36, with an age range from the 20s to the 60s. University works with students to plan their degrees around their needs and schedules. Tuition "Show us what you know, not how long you've been there" WGU charges a flat tuition rate per six months starting at $2,890 per term rather than charging per credit hour, encouraging students to complete their assessments faster. Focus on expanding access to higher education - impetus to keep tuition low. "While such programs [like Western Governors University] are now the exception, I want them to be the norm." US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan

Transcript: Style About this style Informal essays are written mainly for enjoyment. They can still be informative or persuasive; however, it is less a formal statement than a relaxed expression of opinion, observation, humor or pleasure. A good informal essay has a relaxed style but retains a strong structure, though that structure may be less rigid than in a formal paperb. The informal essay tends to be more personal than the formal, even though both may express subjective opinions. In an informal essay the writer is speaking directly to the reader in a conversational style. When writing informally, try to maintain a sense of your own personality. Do not worry about sounding academic, but avoid sloppiness. How To Write Informally: Avoid a stiff structure Avoid Wordiness Avoid Lofty Words May use colloquial words/expressions (kids, guy, awesome, a lot, etc.) May use contractions (can't, won't, shouldn't, etc.) May use first, second, or third person. May address readers using second person pronouns (you, your, etc) May use short and simple sentences. Difficulty of subject may be acknowledged and empathy shown to the reader. Example 1: This is to inform you that your book has been rejected by our publishing company as it was not up to the required standard. In case you would like us to reconsider it, we would suggest that you go over it and make some necessary changes. Example 2: You know that book I wrote? Well, the publishing company rejected it. They thought it was awful. But hey, I did the best I could, and I think it was great. I'm not going to redo it the way they said I should.
