Welcome to the era of digital transformation in higher education

Consider a business in which the client is a digital native and perceives the world in a different way, with expectations different from those of previous generations. It presents higher education institutions and teachers with the challenge of finding ways to reinvent how to teach and relate to students.
 
 

Institution Challenges

Higher education challenges consists of an interesting combination of the natural evolution of new teaching methods and a type of student with higher expectations: technology and social commitment as common ground.

Not only do higher education institutions need to provide modern tools and skills appropriately to this new generation, but they also have the difficult task of identifying future trends in order to prepare students for emerging jobs or those not yet identified.

While the goal of the institution is to provide quality education and improve its reputation, higher education institutions also have their own objectives as an entity. Faculty members, who are mostly well-trained professionals, may consider industry-specific goals, but the labor market, in turn, is the main consumer of this product and defines the success of the process.

Trends in Education

At RICOH, we help students transcend the transition into the market proactively. Mainly, in order to do that schools need to offer a Collaborative Experience, content that is aligned to the modern times and Differentiated Instruction.

 
 

Collaborative Experience

Collaborative experience occurs through group interaction and the exploration of different perspectives of other students and teachers. The role of the teacher is to become a facilitator rather than a professor.

 

Collaborative tools help unite students in a shared knowledge discovery and discovery exercise, and helps develop the skills and teamwork that students will face in their professional lives.

Aligned Content

Although the Internet makes it possible to exchange services and information, it is not necessarily reliable. Tools such as identity management and access are designed to ensure reliability for those who access resources (data centers, databases, remote instruments, learning resources, etc.).


The ability to share resources beyond the limitations of the physical campus depends on the management of trust, identity and access.

 

Differentiated Instruction

Online learning provides greater flexibility than traditional campus programs. The technology allows not only the flexibility of time, but also empowers students to review topics that were not fully understood. That is the concept of "at my own pace", in which the student is 100% in control of the learning process.

In physical classrooms, teachers also understand that not all students learn at the same pace, so by dividing the class into groups helps the teacher to advance at different speeds and levels according to each group.

Student Journey

Heading off to college is a major life change for the majority of students. Part of your role is to help make that transition as seamless as possible for them. At RICOH, we believe we can help narrow this gap by helping students transcend the transition neatly.

The Candidate

The goal of a higher education entity is to attract students of a promising profile, including campaigns and initiatives that target the appropriate audience and providing the appropriate incentives to initiate dialogue. It is a circular process where the institution disseminates its value proposition with the goal of attracting the student who in turn has the affinity and desire to enter.
 

The Applicant

Improve the experience of the student, staff and educators at the beginning, by streamlining processes, and paving the way in one of the key phases with first impressions. The digital generation expects a speedy response, combined with uninterrupted, efficient and accurate processes. Any experience to the contrary would be a source of frustration among applicants from the beginning of the process.

The Admitted

Once accepted to the institution of higher education, educational institutions have the task of connecting with those admitted and providing them with more than information. It is creating an expectation of the coming experience, creating social communication environments with other students and groups that will be part of the student's life, for the next four years.
 

The Student

Entering college is life changing for most students, so the role of the institution is to retain the best students and ensure that they succeed in college and the workforce. To achieve retention and graduation, the best strategy is for the student to perform as best as possible, using the best available technology in synergy with the most up-to-date learning concepts.

The Graduate

The conclusion of the academic program is not the goal, rather it is just the beginning of a new phase for the student, as they prepare to face life in their communities and become a part of the professional world. Disconnection between these two worlds can be stressful and lacking in productivity for both the graduate and the market.
