The need for adult-specific EdTech

Do adult students require different EdTech?

Reported by EdSurge, a new study from the U.S. Department of Education finds that adult learners and traditional learners likely need very different EdTech tools.

For instance, when an LMS serves as a complement to the traditional classroom vs. the entire classroom experience, it probably needs to be designed completely differently.

And yet, we have single-serving EdTech tools that are trying to be all things to all students.

The takeaway? How can we make sure our adult online students experience both high-tech and high-touch experiences at our institutions?

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