Personalizing the Student Experience
Years ago, retailers successfully figured out how to deploy technology that allows for a personalized shopping experience, putting the shopper in control. Higher education must do the same by creating a personalized learning experience, putting the student in control.
As one of the last sectors yet to benefit from the technological revolution, higher education’s focus has always been on the success and longevity of the institution. That outdated paradigm must now be flipped to focus on the success of the student.
Every student approaches their education with a unique set of experiences, challenges, and needs. Depending on where they’re starting from, some learners need help establishing good academic skills. Others need guidance with developing social/emotional skills. The task is to create individualized student-centered systems that build off each person’s experience.
Higher education institutions must innovate by harnessing the power of data and technology.
