Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has today announced the formation of Woz U, an online university designed to make tech education more affordable. While the initiative is an online-only one for now, Woz says that the plan is to offer brick-and-mortar campuses in more than 30 cities across the U.S. and around the world. Woz U is intended to benefit both students and businesses alike, helping bring people into the workforce and providing a new source of trained tech workers for companies looking to hire.
To help identify the best education track for each student, Woz has created an app to guide them. Woz U will also provide school districts with K-12 STEAM programs designed to nudge suitable students toward a career in tech, as well as subscription-based and customized training for companies.
