Technology has a pivotal role to play in helping teachers and other educators deliver learning that gets results, while managing workload. Many educational institutions are at a turning point, implementing new technological solutions or evaluating the many options available to them. At this crucial point, robust training and support must form part of implementation programmes if digital transformations are to have the fullest effect.
The world of education is changing. In the face of technological progress and the drive towards flexible study environments, educational institutions are evaluating the way they deliver learning. Where there is pressure on tuition fees, universities compete more than ever for students. Yet securing enrolments is only part of the picture, to maximise course completion rates, universities must monitor student progress and continually evolve courses in line with changing demands and needs.
