Navigating What Higher Education Students Need
We’re telling stories of colleges and universities using technology in ways that help bring more students to campus, either online or in person.
At Oregon State University, President Jayathi Murthy has focused on growing the university’s Ecampus online learning. Ecampus welcomes learners from all 50 states and internationally and has contributed to the school being the only public university in the state to increase enrollment each year since 2020.
Students seeking flexibility in their classes might be more inclined to attend a school with remote options. At San Francisco State University, a school that helped pioneer the HyFlex learning modality, classrooms are designed to make the in-person and remote experience seamless.
Colleges and universities that offer more than just classes in in-demand fields could have a leg up when it comes to attracting students. At Fairfield University, students get hands-on experience working in the school’s security operations center, using the same technology they’ll see in the field.
At schools such as Purdue University, automation and artificial intelligence are helping make communication with prospective students easier and more efficient for all parties. Streamlining this communication can leave a positive impression on prospective students and can help deliver more information faster.
Attracting and retaining students will always be a priority for higher education institutions, and with the help of technology, colleges and universities can stay ahead of the curve.
