Episode 526 titled "A Certificate & A Degree - with Lisa Gevelber, Founder of Grow with Google" features a great interview with Lisa. She helps people who need certain career skills, especially during the covid-19 pandemic. Some of these people have college degrees and some don't. Lisa created Grow with Google, in which people learn from Google experts and receive their training to qualify for entry-level jobs. Grow with Google can also help those with specialized knowledge credits to earn professional certifications. In fact, Grow With Google partners with some colleges and universities like Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, ...provide these trainees with vocational certificates after they have successfully completed specific corriculous. In my view point, this is a great example of the transformation of higher education, as it involves vocational skills trainees, colleges, Google experts, and also the needs of the job market. Between the people who need jobs, and the market that needs skillful labor workers, entrepreneurs or businesses and colleges or universities to come and join. It's such a capable and efficient fusion. This could be a good viable structure or form for American higher education in the future. It is worthful and should continually practise and explore.
