being planned: access to 1900+ On-demand mobile lessons to help students prepare and persist in college and their careers.

Surprisingly, around two thirds (2/3) of students in the USA find themselves unprepared for college (or for a career in business, healthcare and information technology), because of shortcomings in "college-level math and reading"* competencies. Further, most students and job-seekers also lack the necessary communication**, systems-thinking, problem-solving, computing and software applications skills.*** Consequently, many students prematurely drop-out of college or withdraw from their career training certification programs.
By integrating best practices from the science of teamwork with the latest in mobile learning technologies, iTi’s Coursewell will revolutionize distributed teamwork and team learning - occurring when workers and learners are geographically dispersed and often interacting at different times.”
The Institute for Technological Innovation (iTi) seeks to: (1) improve students' retention and persistence (via mobile applications, distributed teamwork, and summer/online preparatory programs); and (2) lower the cost of business, healthcare, information technology (IT) and project management (PM) education, training and job-preparation (via free online, open source textbooks and very low-cost, adaptive, self-paced video instructional materials) by:
(I.) partnering with industry & educational institutions; (II.) leveraging technological innovations and advancements in mobile learning technologies; and (III.) gaining from the digital economies of scale derived from automation, AI, block chain and machine-learning technologies.
