In the News: ASU Abandons the Global Freshman Academy Project and Moves Into an Open edX Initiative

Education Next reported in its Spring 2019 issue (“Entrée to Freshman Year”) on the challenges facing the ASU program. The article also reported on alternatives, including Modern States, which offers freshman year classes online for free (versus paid for ASU) and transferable to thousands of institutions (versus only good at ASU).
