Wondering how higher ed digital strategies are measuring up with a key stakeholder in the sector – students? A new report from DJS Research, as reported on by EdTech, captures some very insightful findings on student perspective about the digital strategies held by their higher ed institutions.
The overall finding is that digital experience is of prime importance to students – both in the admissions process and once matriculated as a student. And in many cases, universities are falling short in this arena. The majority of those surveyed indicated that their universities need to update their digital strategy. So much so, that a concerning percentage of respondents indicated that a subpar digital experience has affected their experience at their learning institution and their overall opinion of their school. The major findings from DJS Research are summarized below.
With a majority of survey respondents recommending an update to university digital strategy, it’s apparent there’s a widespread need for modernization in higher ed.
