COURSES EVOLVING INTO COMMUNITIES:

• Are courses evolving into communities? I foresee all courses having a community component within 2 years.

• Evolution PDF’s → Videos → Access → Services → Community → Done for you.

• Are course communities just turning into SaaS companies?

• Do cohorts need to have a specific topic and a specific deadline?


TOOLS:

What are the tools needed to create a cohort based platform?


PROBLEMS WITH COMMUNITIES:

• What are the biggest problems you see with communities?

• Why can’t people just do this on Facebook Groups?

• How do you keep a community engaged?


COHORT BASED PLATFORMS:

• How is this different than college, grad school?
