Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is pleased to announce the passing of a new bill that allows institutions to test new educational options and opportunities based on a students demonstrated knowledge and skills instead of time spent in the classroom. The bill, sponsored by Arizona Representative Matt Salmon and Colorado Representative Jared Polis, aims to increase access and affordability in higher education through competency-based education programs like the ones offered at CSU-Global.
I am thrilled that the House of Representatives recognized the promise of competency-based education in Colorado and across the country by overwhelmingly passing this bipartisan bill, said Representative Polis. This legislation will allow colleges and universities like CSU-Global to continue to lead the way in attracting, educating, and graduating adult learners and other contemporary students. I urge the Senate to bring this bipartisan legislation to the floor for a vote, so that CSU-Global and other high-quality colleges and universities can have the regulatory flexibility to meet their students unique needs.
As a longstanding leader in academic innovation, CSU-Global already offers alternative credit options, including competency-based exams, which meet the rigorous academic standards required of a state university. These options help students to manage out-of-pocket expenses and reduce the overall cost of their education, while rewarding them for their demonstration of knowledge. This bill allows CSU-Global to expand upon these opportunities, while also opening them up to potential coverage by federal financial aid.
This bill is a significant step forward in providing students with new opportunities to demonstrate their learning and complete their degrees within frameworks approved by the Department of Education, said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, President of Colorado State University-Global Campus. As a state university that champions nontraditional student success, flexibility, and affordability, we are pleased to see that Congress has essentially voted to support higher education innovation.

Linn-Benton Community College is formally announcing the launch of its new online campus, LB iLearn. Programs officially launched January 14, and student enrollment has been gradually increasing since.
LB iLearn, offering 100 percent online, flexible-paced programs, is expected to attract students who are unable to attend the traditional college due to a number of barriers to accessibility: transportation, work responsibilities, scheduling conflicts, daycare, location, and more.
About LB iLearn
Funded by a four year Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCT) grant on behalf of the U.S. Department of Labor, LB iLearn has been in development since 2013.
The goal of the LB iLearn campus is to provide quality education to anyone, anytime, anywhere. LB iLearn students can start classes any Wednesday of the year. All coursework is online and students may move through their coursework at a pace of their choosing.
Instead of paying a per credit rate for tuition, LB iLearn students pay a flat rate per month and may complete as many credits for that amount as they are able. This enables accelerated learning and faster completion of credits.
Support is a key element of the LB iLearn campus. Each student is provided with a Navigator who acts as a mentor who will stay with them from when they start to when they finish their credential. Each course is equipped with a Content Expert that is available for extra help and an Assessment Evaluator who grades coursework and provides meaningful feedback. This team of support ensures students do not feel on their own and promotes student success.
Programs offered through LB iLearn are short-term certificates in Social Media, Medical Coding and Reimbursement, Office Technology Skills, and Accounting Clerk. An associates degree in Business Administration is also offered. Lastly, courses on Computed Tomography are offered for individuals who have their Diagnostic Imaging licenses and want to expand their skills. More programs are to be added as the campus grows.
Prospective students interested in more information should contact Lara Miller, LB iLearn Admissions Specialist, at 541-917-4887 or millerl(at)linnbenton(dot)edu. The LB iLearn website can be found at http://lbilearn.linnbenton.edu.

They first met back in 1989, when a young Yearwood sang back-up vocals for a raw new talent named Garth Brooks. Then in 1990, she sang support on Brooks’ second album No Fences and served as opening act on the rising star’s 1991 nationwide tour.
Several years later, when they found themselves suddenly single at the same time, their undeniable connection turned romantic and they married in December 2005. Today, the couple can claim five Grammy Awards, 11 Country Music Awards, 16 American Music Awards and 14 Academy of Country Music Awards between them.
According to the RIAA, Garth Brooks is the second best-selling solo album artist in the U.S. behind Elvis. Hes ranked third in global sales behind the Beatles and Presley with 134 million albums sold. He is also one of the best-selling artists of all time with more than 190 million albums, singles, and videos to his credit.

Troyal Garth Brooks was born February 7, 1962 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was the youngest child of Troyal, a draftsman and Colleen, a country singer who recorded for Capitol Records. As Brooks was growing up, his family hosted weekly jam sessions and all of the children were expected to participate by doing skits or singing.
Brooks released his eponymous first album in 1989 and it peaked at Number Two on the U.S. country album chart while climbing to 13 on the Billboard 200. With his unique integration of rock elements into his recordings and live performances, he achieved immense popularity; and this progressive approach allowed him to dominate the country single and album charts while crossing over into the mainstream pop arena.
Brooks broke records for both sales and concert attendance throughout the 1990s. His recordings continue to sell well; and, according to Nielsen Soundscan, his album sales (officially at 69,544,000 as of May 2014), make him the best-selling album artist in the U.S. in the SoundScan era.
Patricia Lynn “Trisha” Yearwood was born and raised in Monticello, Georgia to Gwendolyn, a school teacher, and Jack, a local banker. She grew up listening to country artists Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells, and Hank Williams; and, in elementary school, she sang in musicals, choir groups and talent shows.
After high school, she attended the University of Georgia and then transferred to Belmont College in Nashville. While at Belmont, she obtained an internship with MTM records and eventually recorded several demo tapes and sang backup for emerging artists including Brooks.
Yearwood rose to fame in 1991 with her debut single, “She’s in Love with the Boy”. She is best known for her ballads about vulnerable young women that have been described by some music critics as “strong” and “confident.
In 1997, Yearwood recorded the song “How Do I Live” for the movie Con Air. It became her signature song and won Yearwood a Grammy. She has also recorded successful duets with husband Brooks, including “In Another’s Eyes”, which won the couple a Grammy as well.
Aside from her success in music, Yearwood has also written three successful cookbooks and is a two-time New York Times Bestselling author. She has also hosted an Emmy Award-winning culinary series on Food Network called Trisha’s Southern Kitchen since 2012.
