Last month’s OBHE conference has found that digital tools and the provision of effective online learning can massively boost the reputation of an institution on both a national and international level. The OBHE, or the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education, is a higher education ‘think tank’ with institutional members across 30 different countries. At a December conference held at Regent’s University London, experts from the board discussed matters of online learning in a session called The New Landscape of Higher Education, which examined the influence of technology, partnerships, pathways and other education innovations upon the higher education sector. The fact that online learning can be beneficial to a university in terms of both funding and international reputation is already public knowledge, but experts at the recent conference emphasised that it can also advance a country’s soft power (defined as a persuasive approach to international relations), as well as the reputation of its higher education sector, generally.
