Eduventures, Inc., the leading research and advisory firm that is focused exclusively on analyzing the forces that are transforming higher education, today announced the release of new research, The Next-Generation Higher Education Technology Landscape. Available today, this report is the first of an ongoing body of research that can help institutions in the selection and adoption of technology as a strategic enabler.
Technology is changing the way higher education operates at every level. Institutions have to adapt to evolving expectations around engagement, delivery, and learning outcomes. To thrive amid this transformation, colleges and universities will leverage technology to change the way education is delivered. In this report, Eduventures provides a baseline assessment of the current technology landscape and outlines the forces that will impact technology decisions in the future.
According to Tony Friscia, president and CEO of Eduventures, “Technology considerations in higher ed continue to increase in complexity. Given current and future requirements, sophisticated tools like online platforms, next generation learning management systems, CRM, Big Data, and digitally mediated instruction are no longer just nice-to-haves. Even schools with limited resources have to invest in and manage new technology initiatives in order to remain competitive. Going forward, the use of technology will affect every facet of operations including recruiting and student retention, learning (traditional and online), alumni relations and fundraising. This report provides a foundation for our commitment to provide comprehensive coverage of the higher ed technology market. ”
