Moody’s: College revenue growth lagged in 2018

Sun, 2019-07-14 02:03

By Shailaja Neelakantan, Education Dive
Decreases or low growth in tuition revenue was a key cause of declining revenue overall at public and private colleges in 2018, Moody’s Investors Service said in a pair of reports on higher ed finances. At public institutions the situation was compounded by lagging state support, while private colleges struggled to curtail expenses. Revenue growth was below 3% at more than half of public colleges, with the median value falling to 2.4% from 2.9% a year ago. Private colleges’ median revenue growth held steady at 2.4% year-over-year, though it trailed a median 2.9% increase in expenses for the third-straight year. Larger institutions outperformed their peers in both sectors as the combination of declining enrollment, slow recovery of public funding and rising tuition stressed revenue.

New digital technologies are expected to take away many jobs. They will also create several new ones. However, to grasp these new opportunities, everyone must continuously learn new skills. “We will now have to move to a continuum of lifelong learning, which essentially means we have to be lifelong learners,” says Ravi Kumar, president at Infosys, the digital services firm.

Overcoming Accessible Online Learning Challenges

Nicole Flynn, cielo24

Without proper support from colleges and universities, faculty and staff are unable to provide accessible content as required by law. And this lack of support and education can have significant consequences for universities. Multiple universities have faced lawsuits and high-cost resolution agreements due to the inaccessibility of their websites, course materials, videos, learning management systems, etc. These institutions include Penn State, University of Montana, Louisiana Tech University, University of Cincinnati, Youngstown State University, Harvard, MIT, and UC Berkeley.

7 Technologies You Need to Know for Artificial Intelligence

Fri, 2019-07-12 02:05

Jessica Davis, Information Week
Artificial intelligence is actually a term that encompasses a host of technology and tools. Here’s a closer look at some of the more important ones. If you aren’t hands on with the projects yourself, you may have heard a lot of different terminology. You may be wondering what it all means. Is AI the same as machine learning? Is machine learning the same as deep learning? Do you need them all? Sometimes the first steps of understanding whether a technology is a fit for your organization’s challenges and problems is understanding the basic terminology behind that technology.

Data Science Salary Survey Reveals Market Shift

Fri, 2019-07-12 02:01

Jessica Davis, Information Week

Entry-level (level 1) predictive analytics professionals with a four-year degree can expect an entry-level base salary that averages $78,615 (with a median of $80,000). A master’s degree won’t make that much of a difference to salary at level 1 for predictive analytics pros who earn a base level salary that averages $80,737 (with a median of $80,000). At the entry level, predictive analytics pros saw a salary increase of 4% year over year, Ferguson said. Level 2 and level 3 individual contributors each saw a 2% increase year over year. Level 3 predictive analytics pros with a PhD earn an average base salary of $159,956 (with a median of $140,000).

Short video platforms and live streaming platforms have converted everyone into a celebrity. TikTok and BIGO LIVE are examples of such short video platforms that are trending these days. These short video apps are gaining popularity because of their easy features which make it easy to use for not so tech savvy people. These platforms enjoy wide reach with audience and users from all the classes of society. TikTok has recently made foray into content aimed at education, health, safety and motivation with its EduTok campaign. Bigo Live is another live streaming platform which also ventured into educational content. Let’s take a look at how these video content platforms are emerging and influencing the content creation in the country.

What Matters More: Skills or Degrees?

Thu, 2019-07-11 02:10

Ray Schroeder, Inside Higher Ed

So, what we hear from industry is that they want workers with the soft skills that do not go out of date, as well as a basic understanding of the current hard facts and skills that will be useful for just a few years before they must be upskilled for a new generation of technology. This combination of knowledge and skills may not require a degree.  While this shift in employment requisites develops, we are now in the eighth straight year of declines in college enrollment. Hundreds of colleges have closed their doors in the past few years, and hundreds more are teetering on the brink.

Higher-ed tech adoption is surprisingly stressful for faculty

A new survey shows that most professors say higher-ed tech adoption is a major pressure point, resulting in anxiety and loss of sleep.  A survey of university professors reveals higher-ed tech adoption is one of their biggest sources of stress–a majority say they’ve experienced anxiety and both personal and professional tension. The survey points to the alarming notion that college and university faculty aren’t ready for technologically savvy students who have never known a world without the internet or smartphones.

For now, CC Search is providing quality over quantity.

Teaching Through a Hurricane

Wed, 2019-07-10 02:10

by Ryan Bitzegaio, EDUCAUSE Review

With campus temporarily shuttered, many students didn’t have access to the technology and resources they needed to complete coursework. So, while faculty were encouraged to maintain communication with their students, a moratorium was placed on due dates and other required coursework while the institution was closed. Once everyone returned to campus, we were then left with the challenge of cramming three weeks of lost time into the fairly rigid confines of what was left of the semester. The university was able to creatively carve out a few make-up days from holidays and weekends, but this alternate schedule didn’t necessarily jibe with the already-disrupted lives of faculty and students. As a result, many faculty—including myself—opted for moving contingent instruction online.

The future of education; building a culture of learning

The President and CEO of Community Brands, JP Guilbault suggests that big change can bring big rewards if we begin rethinking the way we educate ourselves. “There needs to be a big shift away from the classroom,” says Guilbault. “Yes, there are trade skills you can pick up from a class or online course, but the real learning comes through the doing of it in the workplace. Organizations need to embrace a ‘culture of trying’ because that’s where learning accelerates.” Throughout this piece, Guilbault breaks down the ways in which organizations can create a culture of learning in the workplace and receive the multitude of benefits which will naturally follow.

Few colleges deploying edtech products consult scientific study, but other factors may be more important – Henry Kronk, eLearning Inside

Tue, 2019-07-09 02:04

One of the central issues pertaining to technology and education today is that few—if any—know whether a new edtech product or service will improve learning outcomes. It might also have unintended consequences. While many researchers have investigated the decision-making process behind edtech implementation at the K-12 level, few have done so in higher ed. Assistant Director and Senior Researcher Fiona Hollands and Research Assistant Maya Escueta, both of the Center for Benefit-Cost Studies in Education (CBCSE) at Columbia University have a new article on the subject.

Neuroscience is changing the pedagogy of education, and it’s about time. Schools have long been ready to embrace scientific theory and research. Everything educators incorporate in their instruction today must first consider whether it aligns with the neuroscience of learning. What we bring into the classroom must be research-based, relevant and ready to support teachers.

ZipRecruiter’s data scientists analyzed over 50 million job postings, surveyed hundreds of employers, and thousands of job seekers, and examined specific use cases in five transitioning industries. They found that AI created about three times as many jobs as it took away in 2018. What’s more, while employers are already using AI tools, 81% of those surveyed said they preferred to hire a human over putting in a completely autonomous system.
