Quality and Noncollege Learning - Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed

The U.S. Department of Education on Tuesday revealed the eight winning applications for an experiment that will free up federal financial aid for noncollege job training, including offerings by coding boot camps, online course providers and General Electric. In addition to the alternative providers, each of the eight partnerships (see chart below) features a traditional college or university and a third party that will monitor the academic quality and results of the job training, serving as a sort of alternative accreditor, although regional accrediting agencies still will need to approve the programs. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/08/17/feds-unveil-details-experiment-alternative-providers-and-accreditors
