- The Apollo Education Group is starting Balloon, a website that lists both open jobs and the skills required for those jobs, as well as a list of courses that can teach those skills.
- The idea is to help adult learners find courses that teach skills that are in demand.
- The courses listed are from sources that include Coursera, Udacity, and Udemy, but could expand to include offerings from Apollo's own University of Phoenix.
Most of the courses listed are not connected to any degree programs. But the skills-based nature of the listings means that might not matter. Apollo says it may make money from the site by selling its recruiting services to companies.
