Institutions must look to immersive content and engaging digital experiences to attract and retain students and other stakeholders

Higher education organizations have traditionally been slower to adopt technology and embrace digital transformation than others. But this last year has forced higher education institutions–both four-year colleges and universities and community colleges–to accelerate their digital efforts. Practically overnight, their online presence became their only presence.
