The Education Industry is Rapidly Evolving
Technology has rapidly transformed every aspect of education, from the number of student applications and the way they’re managed, to what goes on in a classroom on a day-to-day basis. These shifts and changes represent opportunities for institutions to grow, but also require strategies and solutions to rapidly adapt.
When successfully integrated into existing processes, technology can improve educational institutions’ workflow. From more efficiently keeping student records to communicating with community partners, digitization has tremendous cost- and time-saving benefits.
In today’s competitive environment, educational institutions need more ways to grow enrollment, provide robust, accessible curricula, and keep down operating costs. Challenges in the education sector include:a
When it comes to education, students and their parents have more choices than ever. As educational institutions compete for student enrollment, undergraduate enrollment is actually on the decline. No matter what stage of life your students are in, streamlining the admissions and financial aid process encourages students to apply. It also helps your institution to identify the students who will thrive.
Students increasingly access course material not just in person, but also on devices that include tablets and mobile phones. Services like Moodle and Blackboard make it easier than ever for instructors to provide high-quality instruction in online and hybrid courses. Accessibility is key when it comes to serving the greatest proportion of students possible as well as improving learning outcomes. However, unsecured networks are vulnerable to data breaches, and when members of the campus community can’t easily print needed class documents from their devices, it leads to headaches for both students and instructors.
Keeping enrolled students engaged and working towards the completion of their school year or degree program is a multi-faceted goal that requires cooperation between all campus units. That’s why ease of communication between these units—teaching teams, registrar’s offices, financial aid divisions, and academic support staff—is essential.
Between physical buildings, expensive educational software, and staffing costs, educational institutions put most of their budget towards maintaining their day-to-day operations. Labor-intensive administrative tasks require not just a budget, but staff members’ time. That’s why identifying cost-savings measures that don’t impact student experience or accessibility is key to an institution’s success.
