The Student Service Benefits of Localized Online Education

Despite online education allowing a student to learn from anywhere, the vast majority of students still choose to attend a university with a physical location within 50 miles of their home.

Reported by EdSurge, this interesting reality opens up an interesting opportunity for hybridized student services, and is why many institutions are creating coworking spaces and in-person support services for their online students.

The takeaway? As the democratization of information continues to help students make progressively economically rational college choices, how do we make sure our institutions remain a top-of-mind option for our local students? Potentially through this hybridized model?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
