Heather Combs on an asynchronous learning format

Thought leaders share ideas with WorkingNation Overheard at SXSW EDU 2023

It’s important for learners to have access to college and career courses that are affordable, flexible, and fully asynchronous, according to Heather Combs, CEO, StraighterLine.

WorkingNation sat down with Combs at SXSW EDU 2023 in Austin.

StraighterLine targets individuals who are looking to advance towards the degree or upskill, reskill, and continue in their career pathway, says Combs.

The learning format is designed so learners can begin courses at any time and complete them at their own pace, notes Combs.

“By having a fully asynchronous class, we empower the student at all times. You don’t have to follow a training schedule or a semester schedule, and you can take as much time or as little time as you need to get through that coursework.”
