    Technology and the Evolving Business Model in Higher Education

    Technology is changing the business model for colleges and universities in myriad ways.

    Regardless of whether institutions are primarily about educating students in person or online, technology is providing new tools to track and encourage student success and to reshape how colleges think about retention and completion. In turn, these efforts have a major impact on the economic health of colleges.

    For the many colleges that now offer online courses or full programs, technology is expanding the universe of potential students and creating a range of business models to serve those students.

    In this webinar we will explore the strategies some colleges are using, and the challenges faced by institutions as they seek to use technology to strengthen their financial bases.

    Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these issues Thursday, August 25 at 2:00 PM ET.
