  • Higher Education is simultaneously world-class and domestically derided, research driven and student dependent, technologically outdated and socially indispensable.
  • Most higher education services including courses, libraries, science labs, text books are online and many are free.Applications providers like Oracle and SunGard Banner provide comprehensive higher education computer programs to automate services and processes and provide them on line.Most college and universities in the USHE have made great progress in these areas but some have not.
  • Online courses from other institutionsFor-profit colleges with a blended online classroom and flexible experienceModularity and learning objectsCommercial coursesGoogle (Mission is to provide all scholarly books, periodicals, AV materials online and searchable. )Offerings by competitors that focus on satisfying students as consumers
  • Accreditation shifts from institutions to course creators and coursesOpen courseware becomes a path to earning creditCourse delivery shifts to mobile devicesTenured professors break from institutions, selling “branded courseware” around the worldNew courseware builder and aggregator enables any expert “to create their own courses and money from the sale”Granting of diplomas erodes as students face “a vast array of faster, better, cheaper ‘status’ options
  • Workplace prep – 85% did not know what BCC meant.
  • Adjuncts will teach online courses for less than $1000 per credit hour.Learning outcomes comparable to those of traditional classroom based courses.Cost of delivering a full four-degree is less than $13,000.compared to price of $ 28,000 to $106,000 at the typical public or private institutions, respectively.Will include the savings on, buildings, parking lots etc. and the student’s convenience by living at home.
  • Increase student participationAdd 109,000 students by 2020Increase student completionMove from 39% to 55% of population with degreesIncrease the level of economic innovationThe Utah Education Network will provide a portal to allow students and faculty members to easily access quality on-line courses at little or no cost.  The Utah Education Network will negotiate state contracts for electronic text books to reduce the cost of textbooks for students.

Leveraging IT to Achieve USHE's Goals Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 2020: Leveraging IT to achieve USHE’s goals
  • 2. IT Opportunity in HE
    The current model for HE may become financially unsustainable, making college increasingly inaccessible to students.
    Technology is a disruptive force to HE.
    Technology (when strategically and practically applied) provides increased accessibility and quality to HE.
    Current progress at USHE institutions.
    Possible Regents’ recommendations.
  • 3. IT Opportunity in HE
    The current model for HE may become financially unsustainable, making college increasingly inaccessible to students.
    Technology is a disruptive force to HE.
    Technology (when strategically and practically applied) provides increased accessibility and quality to HE.
    Current progress at USHE institutions.
    Regents’ recommendations for future.
  • 4. The Rising Cost of Higher Ed
    Current numbers circulating
    439%
    147%
    106%
  • 5. Impact of the Recession
    ↓ Budgets
    ↑ Tuition, ↑ student debt
    ↑ Tuition dependency
    ↓ State resources allocated
    ↑ Reliance on private and federal funding
    ↓ Access (low income, first generation students)
    ↓ Reduction in student completion rates
    New normal is cost management and greater productivity
    Financing problems are structural, not short-term
  • 6. Thriving in the Paradox of HE
    To survive the university and colleges must break with tradition,
    but to thrive they must build on what they have always done best.
    Technology investment in teaching, administration, research and public service can bring down the cost and improve quality.
