Transform the Experience. Impact Student Success.

Enrollments in higher education institutions have steadily increased along with greater accessibility of online courses. Unfortunately, so too have the number of students who do not complete their degrees. Amidst the economic downturn, increasing numbers of new students have enrolled in new courses of study in order to increase their marketability for jobs or to pursue a new career. In addition, colleges are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in educational recruitment, making it imperative for educational institutions to examine closely how to maximize student enrollments and success while minimizing attrition.

Several additional trends in education, particularly with regard to technology, make creation of new content challenging for educators. For example, openness among prospective students to consider online delivery of courses means that educators must consider which content is best suited for online delivery and how best to convey it, while an increase in the average age of college students poses challenges in delivering content online while accounting for potential need to educate students on how to use the tools. An increased preference for students to work while continuing their pursuit of higher education means that offering online courses and support services on a flexible or even a 24x7 schedule becomes imperative; and the need to incorporate mobile, experiential, and web-based technologies poses challenges in adapting content to these new media. It is important for educational institutions to keep ensure that their course offerings and student support services keep pace with these trends in order to differentiate their institution by providing a quality learning experience.
