Disrupting Education with Mooqita
Access to education is one of the five millennium goals of the united nations. With online education this goal seems closer than ever before. Yet, connecting education at scale to income-earning opportunities, and more broadly to careers, is still a daunting challenge. In the 21st century, a considerable gap exists between the content of education and the requirements that industry has when hiring. Education is often theoretical, while organizations require people who have a proven track record of applying their knowledge. Mooqita bridges this gap by connecting education and work.

What we have achieved sofar
We were engaged in a UC Berkeley Extension MOOC providing students with additional exercises that fit their course. Students could solve these tasks that were a little more challenging than the regular assignments and, if they finished all three assignments they were selected to to work on a group assignment that payed.
