AbstractThere is a growing push within schools and universities to meet changing student and workforce needs by reorganising degree programs into more flexible and personalised courses. Currently, studentschoose from a pre-established menu. In both high school and university, thereis some choice and tailoring through electives, but this is not enough. Inuniversity, students choose a degree (course) and complete the requiredsubjects with some electives. Some universities offer double degrees thatallow limited elements of flexible career planning. For example, a universitystudent preparing for a career as a Digital Designer in a multi-nationalcorporation will need to take subjects in computer science, desktop publishing,project management, communications, international relations, and marketing. Inthe current state-of-affairs, the university student will need to choose a degree inone or possibly two of these areas, with a few single-subject electives. The graduate will have learning/training gaps and will have enrolled in a number of subjects that may not match his/her career plan.
