Digital learning technologies help instructors:

  • Leverage time better: Digital learning provides quick feedback to instructors on where students are struggling, allowing teachers to provide additional instruction and answers to common questions, either online or in person.  Automation eases or eliminates routine grading, freeing course teams to spend more face-to-face time with students.

  • Spread knowledge widely: Digital platforms allow instructors to reach more students, often by orders of magnitude than via on-campus courses.  Instructors can disseminate new ideas more quickly, touching more people and impacting more lives.

  • Engage a worldwide audience: Digital platforms allow instructors to meld worldwide participants into campus teaching, creating global conversations – resulting in richer teaching experiences, from architecture and entrepreneurship, to climate change and innovation, and beyond.

  • Build learning modules quickly: Digital learning empowers instructors to build courses using the best content previously developed by other instructors and colleagues, whether within the same department, or even at other institutions.  This “digital abstraction” for modular learning content is the real meaning behind the “digital” of digital learning.

  • Improve instructional techniques: Through evidence-based research, instructors can measure how people learn most effectively and respond with scientifically grounded strategies for educating students.
