Abstract
Purdue University Global offers free online services and personalized mentoring to help learners identify and organize prior work and life experience and skills that could count toward a degree or career growth. This is an excellent option for adult learners looking to enhance existing skills and/or complete a degree. Open courses and open degrees address a growing trend in competency-based education and the need to create affordable, flexible learning options for adult learners. Use of open educational resources (OERs) has reduced the economic barriers allowing individuals to pursue learning to enhance their academic and professional interests. The implications for institutions of higher education lie in establishing ways to improve access and reduce cost for individuals pursing higher education with a design to meet academic and professional needs.
