Giving Compass’ Take:
· Education Dive touches on some of the top trends in edtech and how cloud computing has allowed higher education institutions to change the way they operate.
· How has edtech changed the way educators approach teaching? How has it helped colleges and universities operate more efficiently?
Experts have noted that colleges acquire abundant data, as the Educausereport suggests, but should coordinate the compilation and use of it better. They are, however, finding new uses for it, including in admissions recruitment and monitoring student activity to predict dropouts.
With regard to cloud computing, while Educause notes it has benefited higher education institutions, some are concerned that it may be more costlythan expected.
The effect of online courses is regularly reported and seen as both an opportunity and challenge to higher education, and survey respondents say institutions are making a mistake if they don’t become involved.
