SEBASTIAN THRUN: Expanding digital education options to integrate businesses.
Sebastian Thrun is a fellow at Google, a computer science research professor at Stanford University and the chief executive officer of the interactive learning website Udacity.
Kasich recently told repor-ters Thrun “has some ideas for things we can do with remediation, some things we can do with AP (Advanced Placement) courses.”
The governor said he’s embraced Thrun and will work aggressively with him. Both men were attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this past week.
“We also think a part of this answer in education is to get the businesses fully integrated with the education system,” Kasich said. He said that will mean offering more diploma and degree credit for real-world experiences.
