So many issues here it's hard to know where to start. The target demographic is adult learners with some college but no degree. They're CLEARLY going to have credit hours. How is it that 'caught them off guard'? They must immediately rethink the whole model. This is not a lucrative market. The evidence around the ONLY bachelors degree conferred in 2yrs of operation (to someone who made bad decisions over 30+yrs and finally got his act together) should drive home that reality. What about all the high school 'graduates' who read at 5th grade level and need remedial courses if they ever have a chance at a degree? What about targeting courses to local employment opps? This team needs to engage pronto with employers to determine how they can turn out qualified employees or eVersity won't/shouldn't survive.
