22. The whole ACE CREDIT thing is a scam, anyway.

It's all designed in such a way that a student pretty much invests half their entire life paying back loans and all because your knowledge and expertise is not verified unless you've been educated via an accredited source. To get accredited? Spend a boatload of money paying into an archaic and institutionalized system specifically designed to take your money.

Who is to say that an Iranian who learns via open courses is not as smart or educated as someone who learns via a $100k student loan over 4 years? Only those invested in institutional eduction would say that.

Note: I think that Coursera is OK, but I expect more open alternatives to happen eventually.
