To accomplish this, UniversityNow has built the most affordable and accessible accredited universities in the world, including Patten University and New Charter University.

This includes employing: Technology-assisted learning environments focused on efficiency and student success; Peer-to-peer learning communities where students share their knowledge and skills, and help each other obtain recognized degrees and credentials; Pedagogical models where the faculty serves as mentors and coaches as well as subject matter experts; Evaluation systems that measure student achievement on whether students meet standards that are rigorous, clearly articulated and recognized; and Tuition models that are significantly more affordable.
