The New Future of Higher Education

Do you have the content, academic approach, and support services to ensure enrollment, maintain engagement, and deliver a high-quality learning experience 100% online or in a hybrid/blended modality?

Many institutions launched emergency remote learning to manage through the early days of theCOVID-19 pandemic. All institutions now realize this stop-gap solution will not satisfy the long-term demands of students, parents, accreditors, and the U.S. Department of Education as they seek to re-open. What can you do now to ensure a high quality online or hybrid/blended teaching and learning experience?
