Online Program Management: Spring 2018 view of the market landscape - 0 views

  •  
    "As the online education market has matured, however, there has been a growing pushback against revenue-sharing as the only model available. Thus there is an emerging unbundled fee-for-service OPM model, in which the companies offer the same services, or some subset, for the market price of those services. The institution pays for the services used, mostly independent of the amount of tuition revenue coming into the online program. This category leads to the program, or institution, to take the up-front financial risk but not have to sign contracts sending ~40 - 60% of the tuition revenue to the vendor. Fewer strings attached but more responsibilities and risks for the school."

After research and discussion, the Professional and Organizational Development Network developed eight principles to guide institutions as they explore and select online educational development resources for their campus communities."

  •  
    "But there is value in seeing what happens when that advice is ignored. And that's where an incident at George Washington University comes in. If technology is just thrown at the problem with no consideration of helping educators to adopt sound pedagogical design, then we can see disasters."

How For-Profit Education Is Now Embedded in Traditional Colleges - 1 views

  •  
    "As the Embedded For-Profit industry develops, he predicts it will further curtail professors' autonomy, already somewhat weakened by colleges' use of outside companies to host learning-management systems - and more recently to help manage and produce online-education programs."

Mapping the Future of Higher Education - 0 views

  •  
    "The company announced that, for the first time, it generated more revenue from digital products than print. This seemed to go relatively unnoticed by most, likely because we all took the evolution for granted, but it is a key milestone in the ongoing reinvention of learning content for Higher Education."
