  14. 14. 36.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Strategy Flexible: Your digital strategy will need to be flexible enough so that your instructional design model as well as your institutional digital marketing & social media strategy can adapt and repurpose itself as each new student behavior or new device experience gains traction. Assess: Assess your current operating model. How flexible is it for change, and how will it transform to harness all these new digital opportunities. Ask yourself... How future-proof is it? New and Cool: Just because there are many new digital platforms and channels doesn’t mean you have to invest in them. 01010101010101010101 14
  15. 15. 36.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Accelerate Change Initiatives The past few years has seen the domestic education market accelerate their change initiatives across the entire campus. This is in response to the pervasive impact of digital disruption. At the same time, some institutions focused on digital innovation and now have a renewed confidence as their focus shifts even more from the brick and mortar campus to everything digital. This is survival with a digital twist. It’s a major paradigm shift for nearly all of Higher-Ed. 01010101010101010101 15
  16. 16. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital • Pressure to get in the digital space “now” • The huge learning curve requiring young minds and seasoned veterans to digitally collaborate or face possible extinction of college the way we know it • The brick & mortar business model must change Which way do we go? Where do we start? • Colleges know they need to be innovative, but they do not know how to capture innovative ideas and turn them into profitable, sustainable business practices • Many are still not sure how to move their campus to a place that is completely different than where they are now What keeps college administrators up at night besides the economy? -- digital 01010101010101010101 16

  18. 18. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Questions Q: Are we “digital enough”? Q: Are we wasting opportunities every day in the classroom to be digital content creators? Q: How do we digitize, package, distribute, support and re-sell this new digital product? Q: Why should we buy online content when we are already creators of it? Q: How do we adapt yet still keep our pedagogical principles in tact? Q: Is there a new norm? Q: Where do we start? 01010101010101010101 18
  19. 19. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital • Professors will become digital content creators • Digitize classroom content • Create it once, sell it many times • Create a branded online content delivery network that displays, interacts, remediates, engages and monetizes classroom content for students anywhere, anytime • Survival for Higher-Ed means they must adapt to the digital ecosystem and create their own The New Norm 01010101010101010101 19
  20. 20. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Colleges / Universities must consider harnessing 8 fundamental drivers: • Digital Consumer Behavior • Digital Content Creation • Digital Engagement • Digital Distribution • Digital Time Shifting • Digital Monetization • Digital Re-Selling • Create it once, sell it many times Today’s student-consumer expects to choose and consume learning content where they want, the way they want it, the time the want, wherever and whenever they want. This is not your brick and mortar learning institution anymore. Direct from the dot-com manual 01010101010101010101 20
  21. 21. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Monetization remains a major challenge, and an area of uncertainty for many institutions. What is clear is that Higher-Ed typically does not have a diverse revenue model looking in this direction. -- it’s time to look. • Monetization is critical for a sustainable digital learning model to occur and be successful • Digital distribution opens up new areas of growth, at a time when student consumers are increasingly prepared to pay for learning content experiences • Multi-platform operation is no longer an option, but an imperative (web, tablet, live, virtual, blended) • Tablet / mobile probably has the biggest growth potential Colleges must find an economically viable trade-off between multi-platform services and interoperability across devices. All while simultaneously creating custom content for every platform and consumer experience. Digital Monetization 01010101010101010101 21
  22. 22. 36.8% 40.8% 9.2% Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Digital Some innovative colleges and universities have worked hard to be innovative and continued to invest in digital channels, even in the recent economic downturn. They are pressing ahead with their student centric initiatives, while also improving their ability to operate more commercial models. They have done this while managing a more complex and sophisticated marketing and enrollment strategy. Media and Entertainment companies embraced change while racing to redesign their strategies for the digital ecosystem and deliver the content experiences that consumers want and will pay for * Higher-Ed needs to learn from the media giants Content Consumption 01010101010101010101 22
