Online Learning for Tech-Savvy Students
The needs and expectations of today's college student are far different than those of their predecessors. Today's student body has grown up as digital-natives who socialize, buy, and bank online. A large percentage rely on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones to access the Internet. And as the popularity of mobile computing rises, students increasingly expect online learning to be available on their device of choice.
These tech-savvy students are revolutionizing universities' approaches to learning. They expect more individual attention than was afforded by traditional lecture-based courses. Most students want technology and games to be incorporated into courses, and expect to easily engage in one-on-one interaction with their instructors and professors.
So the challenge is, how do you deal with this new and evolving learning environment?
