Carmel is designed to implement an educational model that is based on solid principles collected from real-world experiences working in the software industry. It is a radical departure from the typical video-based lecture model and it is aimed to create a learning experience much closer to how professional software developers learn on an ongoing basis, rather than mirroring how computer science is taught in a traditional college setting. With Carmel, developers engage in a hands on, microlearning model that is self-directed, peer driven and story-based.
The challenge with centralized education is that it is highly modeled around the needs of the central party running the show, while the teachers and students are treated as second class citizens in the system. What that really means is that the power resides with the controlling party, the platform, leaving the key stakeholders of the system, the teachers and students, powerless to make key decisions. If we want to create a model that works best for those who really want to learn and for those who want to teach, we must give them full control of the ecosystem and stay back and let them decide what’s best for the community as a whole. That includes giving teachers full control of pricing and giving them 100% revenue share.
