An attractive digital offering encompasses not just how, when and where learning is delivered from, but also includes the ability to access content, platforms, and information seamlessly in a form that gives Students the advantage they are looking for in their early careers. Students want an experience that will help them realise their full potential - regardless of their background or location, and they do not want to be encumbered with bureaucracy or digital barriers to prevent them learning effectively. Universities are increasingly looking for a consistent international experience as competition drives the need to attract both local country and international students. The ability to access programmes and IT platforms from anywhere in the world will be an attraction that would improve student participation as well as increase University revenues.

Outstanding universities are a combination of high performing, engaged students, excellent academics and thought leading research. Trying to create this finely balanced eco-system in today’s technologically advanced world, where expectations are sky high, is trickier than ever.

High tuition fees mean students have greater expectations of their onsite and remote learning and if unsatisfied, the threat of dropout threatens institutions budgets.

To accommodate the hybrid environment lecturers are under more pressure to create compelling content which works wherever it is delivered. This in turn is time consuming and means finding ways to accelerate progress is of increasing importance.

Research grants are also getting more and more competitive and have greater standards of compliance, especially when it comes to security and data, not to mention the expectation that academics will be supported with increasingly high levels of technological support and freedom.

Universities that are evolving with these changes are the ones creating more morphing into:

  • More flexible environments
  • With more agile support
  • With more agile financing models which can flex with change.
