Multi-Institution eLearning Collaborations
July 19, 2022

A single educational source can provide great benefits for students of all ages and across disciplines. However, a multi-faceted approach leads to better results overall. When institutions collaborate and integrate learning opportunities, the sum of knowledge adds up to more than the individual parts. These efforts give advantages to the students and the institutions themselves. Smart relationships focused on eLearning content allow them to better serve their audience and reach their individual mission objectives. This is only possible through online efforts.

1. Why Collaborations Make Sense

People who want to learn throughout their lifetimes seek out as many sources of information as possible. Fans of museums visit them in every city they travel to. Professionals interested in furthering their careers look for educational opportunities to improve their skills. Universities cater to both high school graduates and adult learners consistently. Businesses provide upskilling and reskilling certifications through accessible online portals.

Nearly 8 million adults in the US alone enroll in higher education schools [1]. Even more seek out additional training from their own or another company or takedown-credit classes to pursue personal interests. People actively search online for multiple places to expand their knowledge base or perfect their skills. When institutions that offer eLearning opportunities collaborate, they all have a much higher chance of attracting those hungry for a more comprehensive education.

2. Only eLearning Provides an Effective Solution

It is physically impossible for two institutions in different parts of the world to deliver on-ground learning at the same time. eLearning offers the quickest and most effective way to enter into collaborative relationships and streamlines multiple sources of information into an attractive platform that engages learners more fully. Best of all, organizations can reach new audiences together, achieve scale and subsequently generate the revenue they need.

As the global online education market tops $10 billion and 90% of polled students say they prefer an online setting, it makes sense to adopt programs now [2]. A custom platform allows access from representatives of multiple institutions and makes launches and changes effective and efficient.

3. Collaborate Instead of Compete

Every institution that provides educational opportunities has particular strengths they want to pass on to learners. Instead of outsourcing those to another organization, collaborate to boost the benefits the end-user receives! Approximately 75% of people polled stated that they engaged with institutions with strong brand identities who share the same values as they do [3]. When it comes to eLearning, this means access to the best materials and most comprehensive coverage.

Many choose competition instead of integration due to a misguided idea that it is the better way to financially support or profit from the system. However, joint courses, subscriptions, and multi-institution eLearning opportunities attract more attention overall.
