Ian Dolphin, Managing Director of Apereo Foundation and Malcolm Brown - Director, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative
These days, higher education seems to be constantly buffeted by inflection points. Out of this swirl, one important thread that has emerged is that of student success. Student success consists of a diverse set of components or dimensions, such as course/degree completion, relevant and affordable academic pathways, high impact experiences, and improved ability to learn. Digital learning environments are the key strategic enablers of all of those dimensions and so are foundational to student success. Student success is further diverse in that no two student pathways to success are identical. This means that our digital learning environments must be agile, flexible, and robust. This session will present a vision for the next-generation digital learning environment and offer the opportunity to engage in discussions on how best to move forwards towards a new digital architecture.
