LearningMate, Jisc, and Emerge Education Report Finds Universities Can Deliver Truly Personalized Learning Experiences by 2030

New York, NY — LearningMate, a leading education technology company, announced today the release of the report, “Technology-enabled Teaching and Learning at Scale – A Roadmap to 2030,” in partnership with Jisc and Emerge Education. The report, based on interviews with more than 50 university leaders, EdTech founders, and higher education experts, finds that universities can deliver students a truly personalized learning experience by 2030.

The pandemic has transformed teaching, promising potential for universities to offer interactive, flexible, and personalized learning, in line with the seamless technology students use at home. The report finds that student demands and expectations for digital learning will continue to increase even after Covid-19, and organizations are already competing with global technologies used by students at home.

The report also explores the changing nature of teaching and learning, the promise of a blended future, and the systems and organizational infrastructure that will need to be in place to enable flexible, interactive, and personalized learning design for the widest possible range of students.

Findings show that universities need to start planning long-term technology strategies now. This will help students to develop the employability skills needed to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution, give staff the stability and digital skills they need, and allow organizations to promote the benefits of blended learning and value for money.

Sharing practical steps and advice, the report recommends that university leaders identify gaps in provision and invest accordingly, devising innovation frameworks to make decisions with pace and agility while focusing efforts on data management.

Nic Newman, partner at Emerge Education said, “Delivering technology-enabled teaching and learning at scale will require significant resources, and universities are still dealing with huge changes. The report shows though, that it is possible to do so by 2030, and that the benefits reaped by students, staff, and universities could be immeasurable. We hope the steps and advice prove a valuable resource for the sector, as it heads towards an exciting technology-enabled future.”  

Speaking on the report, Prasad Mohare, Senior Vice President at LearningMate said,

“The pandemic has accelerated the digital shift in education. Colleges and universities around the world are building hybrid, high-flex and digital programs at a scale and pace that has never been seen before. This report offers a pulse on the change happening around us and offers timely guidance to campuses and organizations who are making this shift.”
