How to Create a Better Learning Experience

How to Create a Better Learning Experience

Learners have high expectations for their academic experience. They desire a high quality, engaging teaching and learning experience—an experience that is modern, flexible, and prepares them for success. And with technology playing a large part of their everyday lives, students expect their learning journey to be enhanced by technology. Institutions are empowering excellence in teaching and learning through simplified integration, open access to content and teaching tools and connections with existing systems and platforms; achieving the personalized experience users demand.

Engagement: One of the hardest transitions of students switching from a traditional taught class to an online class is that students might not feel as connected as they were when they went to a face-to-face course. In order to keep students engaged during class, active learning, like gamification and similar techniques, has been proven to make a positive difference in students grades and engagement during the class.

Consistency: Within the learning environment, consistency in format and design helps both students and instructors. For example, consistent grading workflows save instructors time and improve grading quality. Instructors can then easily provide personalized feedback to improve student learning in less time and develop an instructor-student relationship.

Course Design: Course design standards across the institution establish consistency and improve course quality. Students approach education like other consumer products now. If they don’t get the quality and value that they expect within their academic platform, they will look for better education choices somewhere else.
