Campus Technology issues predictions for 2016

January 7, 2016

Campus Technology has predicted that over the course of 2016, the number of public-private partnerships between postsecondary institutions and service providers for managing online degree programs for international students will increase. Online proctoring is also set to become mainstream, and one in 10 colleges will acquire a new constituent relationship management system. The next few years are predicted to be a “matter of trial and error” for the higher education industry. With flat traditional enrolment, low adult numbers, and slow-growing online enrolment, analysts report that successful colleges will be those that are “well branded … willing to grow … [and] niche players with a distinct message that the market values.” In an upcoming piece for the Academica Forum, Cape Breton University President David Wheeler will further explore the ways in which online education and information technologies will transform higher education.
