Will state university systems figure out how to scale online growth?

Will state university systems figure out how to scale online growth?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, The University of Missouri System shared plans to increase their total student enrollment from 75,000 to 100,000 over the next four years, primarily via online education growth.

Now, wanting to grow and making it happen are two very different things. But online education could indeed get significantly more affordable as it scales, increasing their market attractiveness. And are state systems in the best position to scale and help redefine the costs of online education?

The takeaway? For years, making online education equitable to on-ground education was the goal. To receive the same quality education with the added flexibility of learning from anywhere. But now, the bar has been raised. Can the same quality education be significantly cheaper online? Can it be even better?

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