Over the next year, the higher education segment can expect to see a major shift to blended learning; an innovative education stack from an existing institution to “rival” the bachelor’s degree; and serious inroads to cross-border online learning. Those are the predictions for 2018 from Eduventures, a membership advisory service for colleges and universities. The company said it expects a “regionally accredited four-year institution” to put together “a creative combination of pedagogy, experience, assessment and delivery mode” that will offer an alternative to the traditional undergraduate degree — but in a shorter amount of time and for less money. “This year, we expect a credential newcomer that will really shake things up,” said Richard Garrett, Eduventures’ chief research officer.
