The case for the engaged university

June, 2018

Let’s face it—running any department at a university, college, or other higher education institution brings unexpected twists and turns each day. This is especially true when it comes to managing the workforce, which is typically a diverse group of employees including hourly and part-time workers, student workers, employees with varied native languages, and more.

Today’s students have expectations that their courses provide flexible, easy-to-access video content and blended learning environments, but implementing video such as lecture capture platforms at scale across campus—and in a way that drives student success—can be challenging.

When it comes to professional development and compliance training for faculty, staff and student employees, many institutions rely on a large number of siloed, separate systems. By moving to a central, shared learning platform, institutions are able to track and report on the progress of training, plan better for the future, and more effectively meet business needs across departments.

The costs of higher education continue to challenge students, while the pressure to reduce administrative overhead and improve efficiency is constant for institutions and their executive leaders. Taking the right approach to student payment plans is one way to address both of these concerns.
