The New Online Learning Imperative

Looking at the future of student needs in higher education

Duration: 1 hour

The ubiquity of technology has changed our world dramatically—and it’s not done yet. Advances in online learning software, virtual tutoring, video conferencing tools and language apps are reshaping the way we think about learning. It’s no surprise that the online education market is expected to explode to a projected $350 billion by 2025.

Adding to major tech innovations is the reality that student needs are changing rapidly. Now more than ever, learning is at an inflection point. Learning loss, learning inequality, financial inaccessibility and the need for upskilling and reskilling in the workforce are only some of the issues we have ahead of us. How is your institution responding?

Join U.S. News & World Report, D2L and industry experts as we look ahead and discover what colleges and universities can do to better enhance the student experience and help propel us into a new, personalized era of learning.
