The success of the first online program offered by Post University was impressive, and soon Post University found itself launching new online academic programs in various disciplines.
Post University currently enrolls about 16,000 online students located all over the world.
Post University continues to innovate the way education is delivered to its student.
In the latest news, Post announced to its students the introduction of a new Electronic Course Materials (ECMs) program which will offer them a more interactive and engaging learning experience as well as a more cost-effective alternative to traditional textbooks.
Post University will be serving a student body encompassed of a considerable higher percentage of non-traditional students as a result of the demographic shift presented by Cruce and Hillman (2012).
Online classes offered at Post University incorporating an array of web 2.0 technologies propelled by the demand of new generation of college students who are seeking a learning environment that is more interactive and engaging
In accordance to Post University’s mission to prepare students for success in the real world, the skills students develop and they knowledge they acquire throughout Post University’s innovative learning environment produces college graduates who have the technological skillset that employers are needing.
Post University’s commitment to invest in technology integration within the learning environment has made it a leader in the education field, and a brand synonymous to quality education and positive student outcome.
This in turns attracts more students who persist in their program from enrollment through graduation. This enables Post University to continue to offer financial aid to eligible students (Sawhill & Goldrick-Rab, 2014).
There are a few ways that Post University can prepare to effectively execute this Future Vision of Education.
Post University must hire a consulting group or firm with vast experience in educational technology implementation practices.
Establish a small control group to evaluate the effectiveness of the new curriculum.
Engage students in various feedback activities including polls, surveys and chat rooms to find out their perspective in relation to the changes being made as student satisfaction is key to the success of any educational institution.
Create a Post University task force team of subject matter experts in web 2.0 technologies to manage these changes internally.
Supply webinars and other training platforms to the faculty in efforts to get them involved and engaged in the learning environment transformation.
As the demands for digitally mediated learning environments continues to be on the rise, many education institutions have been faced with the need to change and adapt their teaching methods in order to remain a competitive force in the education industry (Callaway, 2012).
The first step that Post University must take if it wants to remain relevant in the education field is to create a committee comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds dedicated to research and test the new digital technologies, as well as creating a strategic plan for implementation.
