Today, our global universities are increasingly focussed on the need to attract students that they will retain throughout a postgraduate study, expand their reach beyond the physical boundaries of the campus location, and improve their commercial models by building stronger and deeper relationships with local businesses, research institutions, and public service organizations.

Digital strategies and technologies

Digital and EdTech strategies play a significant role in each of these areas and are fast becoming the key differentiator for universities, academics, and students.

The number of students studying remotely has been increasing over the last decade. It continues to grow, fueled by COVID-19 and students’ emerging awareness that they can attend the institution of their choice without having to shoulder the cost or endure the inconvenience of relocating.

Also featured are some technology thought leaders who have helped a wide array of higher education institutions modernize and give their tips to local universities on how to launch a digital campus.
