The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation today announced a $2.5 million grant to Carnegie Mellon University.

The funding is for the university’s Community College Open Learning initiative, a project to develop on-line classes for community collleges.

The classes will be developed by CMU’s computer interaction experts, software engineers and faculty from some 40 community colleges.

The grant is one of four grants made by the Gates foundation today. All are related to community college curriculum and aim to improve graduation rates at such institutions.
