It’s possible that in 20+ years the education scene could be very different.
Courses and degrees in a good amount of situations are long, uninteresting and useless. It’s my impression that education is still too glued to the past industrial type age, top - bottom, when those relations should be much more about sharing and collaboration than imposing and ruling. Rules have their place, but in my opinion we loose a lot with a system like that, that (in the end) is not voluntary. Even if it seems, most people are pressured by various factors to enroll.
Matchpool could be there within and with that change.
More diversity, allowing for tutors and students to meet, workshops, etc.
So people could focus on content, and the paper the status might or not come later. It seems that people are going for the later, and then teachers and students see themselves in a kind of swamp, with either party not interested in what they are doing.
So that’s that, a project like this would give some possibilities.
