Unlocking the modern potential of traditional education: FeedbackSwift and Exertify
Let’s begin with a story today. The one that will raise the question of what is education today.
In 2018, the Observer mentioned an English teacher Cheryl Morris who made short videos of herself discussing assigned texts. She gave her students a choice: they could watch her on video, either at home or in class, or read texts themselves.
Solely by implementing a small digital innovation, she managed to drop her students’ failure rate from 10 or 15% to zero.
While this is the end of her story, the background discussion on educational institutions is only emerging.
As the digitalization takes over the education, transforming it into an e-learning industry, official institutions can't afford to fall behind the process. The trouble is they traditionally do.
Still, there is a single advantage which sets the universities apart, providing them with unlocked potential. While online courses are gaining in popularity, students are still seeing the traditional institutions as a way into employment. In other words, they are likely to invest in their future, especially if they perceive higher education as responsive to their needs.
To put things in perspective, it means that universities don’t need to change their curriculum. What they need is a business plan to successfully compete in the global market. Cheryl Morris realized this timely.
Learning from her example, the institutions must respond to the needs of “digital natives” who spend 53 hours online weekly.
To do so, they need strategic knowledge and a partner.
If Cheryl Morris was a decision maker or a stakeholder, she would certainly invest in survey making software. Because she knew that feedback and actionable data set the stage for improvement. Because she knew that educational outcomes are achieved through adding relevant value.
