At the recent OneFile user conference, Sue Thexton, Managing Director and Executive Vice Principal, shed light on the pressing challenges in the world of edtech, such as the financial stability of the provider landscape during the cost-of-living crisis, in addition to the challenges we all face in the sector to improve completion rates.

It wasn’t all bad though, there was such a buzz throughout the conference, with the focus on ‘The future of engagement’ and its importance to our sector.  Sue passionately talks about the immense possibilities that come with learner data visibility, and how it can revolutionise educational experiences for the better.
