The problem

 

Supply | Demand

Future of the university

"Thirty years from now the big university campuses will be relics. Universities won’t survive. It’s as large a change as when we first got the printed book"

Peter Drucker, 1997

TO GO

Financial pressure in ODL

Coates' review

"Unless significant changes are made – and soon – AU will face a financial crisis early in 2018"

AU should rebrand itself as “the leading Canadian centre for online learning."

Financial pressure in ODL continues

"Institution plans to save 25% of annual budget ... and reinvest in digital transformation."
