Challenges to overcome during this change transformation journey
In the last two years, if we were to shortlist the top three most asked questions across the globe, one of them would be: Are you on mute? During the last two years, both the instructors and students were forced to spend endless hours in front of Zoom. But by now, we all agree that it was just a stop-gap arrangement and not a complete digital transformation (Dx) solution.
In the context of higher education, Dx is more than making your in-person programs available as self-paced eLearning material. It needs to be a more holistic solution. It needs to be about supporting educators. And it needs to be about ensuring equity for students in terms of providing them quality education in an affordable manner, irrespective of whether they attend college in person or virtually.
EDUCAUSE research shows that 13% of colleges and universities are engaging in Dx today, 32% are developing a Dx strategy, and another 38% of higher education institutions are exploring Dx. With only 17% of institutions investing no time in Dx, higher education truly is driving to digital transformation.
Is your university keeping pace with the digital transformation?
Join us for Harbinger’s EdTech Power Hour, a one-of-its-kind virtual roundtable, on May 19 at 11 AM Eastern Time. In this episode, we will be talking to leaders from the industry and academia. The focus would be on discussing how to go about implementing the Dx strategy from teaching and learning perspectives.
