One of the most critical problems with remote learning is that between 2019 and 2020, ransomware attacks on colleges doubled, with cyber criminals turning the tactics they use on corporations, cities and governments on schools.
Because of increased cybersecurity risks as your online learning environment expands, your institution will likely need to invest in online security solutions for higher education as its digital footprint expands to include more students, devices and locations.
Lastly—and maybe most importantly—work to develop and adjust communication and marketing plans for current and future students. One of the common problems with remote learning is that students may have different expectations for what their education looks like. Your online learning platform will evolve based on what you learn over the coming years, shaping the experience of tomorrow's students. Students will need to know the experience they're signing up for, and instructors will need to be equipped to support them as best possible.
As you work to build an educational experience that meets modern students' needs, know that the solutions you need are available to you today. Explore how you can transform your online education at your institution to provide a robust, agile learning experience.
