“Universities are recognizing that their engagement with students needs to happen early and continue after graduation. That’s just reflecting the reality of the workplace today,” Nina Huntemann, the director of academics and research at edX says. It also reflects the growing diversity of prospective, current and returning students who need different skills and credentials. “What online education at scale really allows is [for institutions] to still provide high quality learning to students who may otherwise not be able to afford it, don’t have the time to stop life and go to a residential program,” she says. “And in particular, to nimbly respond to the [workforce] requirement to constantly skill and reskill yourself in a career.”
