How Technology is Unbundling Traditional Higher Education
Tade Oyerinde joined the host of The Voices of eLearning, JW Marshall, to discuss online learning technology and the unbundling of traditional higher education. Oyerinde is the founder and CEO of Campuswire, an online software specifically designed to meet the needs of professors and students.
“COVID accelerates a trend that already existed,” noted Oyerinde.
Marshall and Oyerinde discussed the dramatic increase in demand for the tools for online learning in March of this year and how that demand has continued to rise as the shift to at-home learning has been prolonged.
Oyerinde commented that one of the biggest mistakes that professors and administrators make is failing to understand the vast differences between synchronous and asynchronous learning.
“The kinds of people who will be successful in an asynchronous online environment are very different than the ones who sort of need that synchronicity… to be there with everybody else in real time,” said Oyerinde.
The duo then dove into the unbundling of traditional higher education, which offers the four E’s: environment, education, employment, and eminence. Oyerinde commented that technology can more easily take the place of education and employment for students, but the learning environment would certainly change and the eminence of the institutions could be affected.
Oyerinde predicted that technology innovations for online learning will completely disrupt the community college sector as it replaces the core education and employment aspects that community colleges offer to students. Furthermore, eLearning technology will enable many institutions to drastically increase their student population at a lower price point within a few years.
