School as a Service: The next big thing in the higher
education industry
Leveraging technology to increase access in the traditional sector
Over the past few years, post-secondary institutions across all sectors
have increased their focus on identifying and applying technologies
and methodologies capable of enhancing access, reining in costs or
enhancing revenue, and contributing to better learning outcomes. Innovation
in alternative educational delivery methods has enabled tremendous
growth in the number of students attending college either partially
or fully online, with the proprietary sector initially leading the charge.
While we believe a number of economic and sociological trends will
drive continued growth in online learning, such programs are clearly no
longer the exclusive property of the proprietary sector, with traditional
non-profit institutions increasingly open to offering online courses and
degrees as well.
