By April 1, 2019 No Comments

In today’s digital age, every higher ed institution unequivocally should have a tailored digital transformation strategy to offer a unique campus experience to the students and faculty this helps in positioning your university as a leader in digital innovation.

Biggest Challenge for Higher Ed University Leaders

With rising competition for students, faculty, and funding – It’s a high time for higher ed institutions to embrace and leverage the potential of the data to enhance the student experience, improve student success & retention, and streamline institution operations. As a matter of fact, integration with legacy systems can result in deployment costs that strain shoestring IT budgets. Every now and there cyber-attacks to the universities – both online and on campus, express an urgent demand for cybersecurity solutions integration across the campus to protect valuable intellectual assets and deliver a safe user experience for students and staff more than ever before.

According to a report by Navitas Ventures, the leading key outcomes that the digital transformation strategy of educational institutions is focused on delivering today include improving the experience of students and meeting their changing requirements.

Forward-Thinking Higher Education Institutions

The most forward-thinking higher ed universities are thriving to the challenges of 21st century higher education and ascertaining smart ways to connect their campuses to build future-ready institutions and drive student success.

An Integrated Data is the Game Changer

The accumulation of data across the university and the blend of smarter software and better hardware for putting it to the job to create a truly connected campus which means the higher ed community can make well-informed decisions, drive students success, retain the top talent, and position great students as future leaders in a world of changing markets, and economics.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Delivers Personalized Learning Experiences

AI helps higher ed institutions in enhancing digital platforms to offer specific course materials and facilitate exams for students. Artificial Intelligence solutions could be easily integrated with traditional student information dashboards to provide faculty/professors with precise and useful information to cover how each student is advancing and predict where they might ‘drop off’ from the rest toward their aptitudes and interests. AI is capable to track the progress of an individual student across the student life-cycle, starting from performance to their participation in courses and activities, and across the different programmes, the university has to offer.

Machine Learning Improves Students Retention

Machine learning is the new catalyst and a game changer for higher ed industry. Universities can leverage Machine learning and its subset predictive analytics to study student patterns, track trend analysis, and identify the level of the “drop of” risks to help institutions mitigate churn and increase students’ retention rate. Higher Ed institutions should exercise the full advantage of the possibilities that Machine Learning can bring to the table and elevate the university performance.

Conclusion

Executing a real digital transformation for higher education institutions is not an option anymore, it’s essential to reshaping the campus experience. Today, all of this is very much achievable if you have the right tools, technology and process in place for a 360-degree view of every student to improve student success and retention.
