HCT VP – Education Technologies interview on Smart Learning
Today’s students are online, you can’t wait for them to come to you, you have to go to them.
We have to make sure that they learn the way they want to learn, rather than the way we want to teach them.
With kids being technology savvy, we have to make it available for them.
We have converted our library to 100 % digital and it is mobile enabled so it can be reached anywhere
They are learning they can do it through completely mobile ready through our Learning Management System.
We broadcast and we record lectures that they can retrieve anytime, anywhere with live broadcast.
If I want to decide which database am supposed to- review in my library don’t I need to know how it is utilized, its accessibility, how much each download costs me?
The bottom line, I need data
It is not about students only, it’s about financials.
It is about your HR. It is about your Finance. It is about your Procurement.
We thought that we have to have a very unified environment that connects all these systems together extracts whatever data through BT to enable you the data.
We have chosen Ethos to help us achieve that for several reasons.
The data model with Ethos is designed for higher education. It is not a one size fits all kind of solution available from other solutions.
The scalability is another reason. The ready integration of the other Ellucian systems, like the ERP for example or the student services are already integrated.
Now integration with the Ethos platform is a key requirement for every system we purchase.
So with a system that is designed to fit you with the agility that Ethos has … definitely it’s a no-brainer as a recommendation to go with Ethos.
