Among the topics: graduates of nondegree vocational programs satisfied; possible changes at an LMS company; keeping AI experts in academe; truce in the laptop wars.

November 20, 2019

Inside Higher Ed covered several topics of potential interest to readers of “Inside Digital Learning” during the past week. They include:

  • Instructure, the publicly traded company behind the popular college learning management system Canvas, is considering a number of strategic options for its business, including a possible sale. The company said it is weighing whether to go private, be purchased by a strategic partner or continue as a stand-alone public company.
  • Graduates of nondegree vocational programs are more likely to say their postsecondary credentials were worth the cost and made them an attractive job candidate than were graduates of terminal bachelor's degree programs, finds a new survey by Gallup and the Strada Education Network.
  • Universities must take steps to stem the tide of artificial intelligence experts leaving academe, Oren Etzioni argues.
  • A professor proposes a truce in the laptop wars.
