Hey Guys, Today my post will be about IS trends used in Higher Education and Universities.
In 2012, these institutions hoped to improve the learning experience for their students by personalising learning environments while reducing the costs associated with them through the use of digital resources and cloud technologies.
Three of the top five trends in education innovation for 2012 as listed by the Gilfus Education Group focused on higher education technologies. These were:
- Prestigious institutions will launch online experiences designed to be as unique as those available to students on campus:
- “Dynamic and flexible learning experience engines” will emerge to replace learning management systems (LMS); and
- Tablets will surge as a means of delivering courses and e-learning media.
Large universities invested huge sums of money into technology, despite their own budget cuts. They wanted to create online learning experiences that are as unique as their own on-campus experience, according to a general partner at Gilfus.
Another trend for 2012 would have been the use of digital text books on college and university campuses.
Sorry this post has been short; R&G week has taken its toll! Talk to you all next week 🙂
