Colleges and universities around the world are facing a period of unprecedented change. Both academic and business models and definitions of quality education have undergone more change in the past several years than higher education has experienced in the previous four hundred. Pioneering institutions like Lone Star College in Houston, Texas and Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma have been able to execute on their vision of providing an increasingly student-centered learning experience by merging both technology and academic programs. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Lone Star has experienced a 19% increase in persistence and Oral Roberts University has achieved a 75.5% persistence rate for online programs—an all-time high. Foundational to these impressive results is Brightspace by D2L—the world’s first Integrated Learning Platform (ILP)— which has moved far beyond the traditional LMS that, for years, has been focused on simply managing learning instead of improving it. 

In this webinar we will walk through the new realities in higher education and how partnership and a shared vision for improving student success is making a real impact today. The webinar includes D2L President and CEO John Baker, Lone Star College, University Park President Shah Ardalan, Oral Roberts University Chief Information Officer Michael Mathews and Provost Dr. Kathaleen Reid-Martinez, and Kenneth C. Green, Senior Research Consultant for Inside Higher Ed and founding director of The Campus Computing Project.
