Abstract


When unemployment is high and education budgets are shrinking, people flock to community colleges and other providers to learn new job skills. Asynchronous and blended education provide solutions for meeting large scale demand, thus this issue features four cases about innovative workforce development programs. Each one of them advances the possibilities and provides replicable practices for expanding access.
