All of these programs cost money to run. All "graduate" people and/or offer a Certificate. All charge an access fee; some have conference attendance requirements which cost more money. Are we glad that these two programs + the CC Certificate exist? Should they all be redesigned?

April 2019 – Helpful conversation about the cost of education.
Perhaps the way @creativecommons articulates the certificates could be updated. Personally, I assumed there would be a ‘pay what you want’ option, equating open with free and optional financial support.
