A sharp increase in demand from employer-sponsored working adults for non-degree educational opportunities has contributed to an exponential growth in the short-form learning landscape recently.
As more and more companies decide to underwrite their employees’ education, understanding the evolving landscape that prospective students must navigate —and where your institution fits within it— is critical for a successful recruitment and enrollment strategy.
Michael Horn will moderate a panel discussion featuring eCornell Executive Director Paul Krause, OpenClassrooms Vice President of Channel Partnerships Rémy Granville, and Pathstream Vice President of Learning Experience Lauren Pizer to better understand the short-form learning space, and how university-affiliated and standalone institutions approach meeting the unique needs of working adult students.
