The University of Delaware Horn Program in Entrepreneurship has developed a series of one-credit courses to further enrich the educational opportunities associated with the Diamond Challenge.
College credit courses in the form of Dual Enrollment (allowing students to earn both high school credit and University credit) augment the Diamond Challenge curriculum by including supplemental materials, assessments and instructor feedback. The online format of the courses provides high school teachers with flexibility in deciding whether to integrate course materials directly into their classrooms or use the materials as a basis for flipping their classrooms.
