Online Education expected to continue it’s growth in 2019

edufficient advertising for online education

 

The number of students who were enrolled exclusively online grew to 15.4 percent  which is up from 14.7 percent in 2016, or about one in six students. The percentage of all students who combined online and in-person courses grew faster, to 17.6 percent in 2017 from 16.4 percent in 2016.  The percentage of students who took at least one course online grew to 33.1 percent, from 31.1 percent in 2016.  Online education continues to prove it’s not only here to stay but growing.

With traditional non profit institutions, OPM’s & for-profits continuing to cater to this growing market it’s clear that there is a lot of opportunity ahead.  Most of the traditional non profits who succeed are generally partnering with OPM’s like 2U or OPM alternative facilitators like Edufficient.  Those who try it alone continue to have a high failure rate.

Virginia College and Brightwood College suddenly close all locations

for profit education closures 2018

Education Corporation of America, owner of a national chain of for-profit schools including Virginia College and Brightwood College in Maryland, is ending operations this week in the face of dwindling enrollment and regulatory pressures.

“This is not the outcome that we envisioned and is one that we recognize will have a dramatic effect on our students, employees and many partners,” Diane Worthington, a spokeswoman for Education Corp., said in a statement Wednesday.

The abrupt closure will leave some 20,000 students at more than 75 campuses scrambling to complete their education once the current term ends Friday. Worthington said the company, known by its acronym, ECA, will ensure students can access their transcripts to transfer to another school.

On its website, ECA promises students it will provide information within two weeks about transcript requests and recommendations on where to transfer. The haphazard planning has drawn the ire of the Education Department, which has been in talks with the company to create a transition plan for students, according to department spokeswoman Liz Hill.

Discounted Rate for MarketDrivenEDU members to Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies Conference —

edu conference

MarketDrivenEdu is pleased to announce it’s 10th annual Media sponsorship of The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies.

 

Coming up on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, in New York City, the theme of this conference is The Role for Private Capital in Bridging the Gap Between Education & Employment.

 

As a friend of MarketDrivenEdu, you qualify for a special VIP rate — $995 ($500 off the standard rate). To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.

 

In this politicized age, it seems like people don’t agree on much to do with education. For instance —

  • 57% of Republicans support charter schools, versus just 36% of Democrats.
  • Only 33% of Republicans think spending on public schools in their district should be increased, versus 58% of Democrats.
  • Just 28% of Republicans believe college is worth the cost, versus 43% of Democrats.

If you’re a private investor, those stats may make you feel nervous. For instance, you may not want to invest in a for-profit college during Donald Trump’s administration, if the next president may be Elizabeth Warren and the rules may change again.

 

One path forward lies in something everyone can agree on — that the U.S. education system needs to do better at preparing people for joining the workforce.

 

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for PE investing in the education sector at this all-day conference, chaired by Daniel Pianko, co-founder & managing director at University Ventures.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.

To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.   

 

Please be sure to mention MarketDrivenEdu to receive this low VIP rate. And note this rate is not available online.

Betsy DeVos plans to eliminate gainful employment regulations!!

Betsy Devos for profit education

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos plans to eliminate regulations that forced for-profit colleges to prove that they provide gainful employment to the students they enroll, in what would be the most drastic in a series of moves that she has made to free the for-profit sector from safeguards put in effect during the Obama era.

The so-called gainful employment regulations put into force by the Obama administration cut off federally guaranteed student loans to colleges if their graduates did not earn enough money to pay them off. That sent many for-profit colleges and universities into an economic tailspin because so many of their alumni were failing to find decent jobs.

The Obama regulations — years in the making and the subject of a bitter fight that pulled in heavy hitters from both parties who backed the for-profit schools — also required such schools to advertise whether or not they met federal standards for job placement in promotional materials and to prospective students.

Its clear she understands the logic that a law should not apply to some colleges but not all of them…

Distance Education growing but not for for profits

Distance Education across the US has been growing steadily, with the exception of for profits.  Tracking Distance Education in the United States – a recent report released by Babson Survey Research Group (BSRG). show the dramatic shift.

Pearson experiments on thousands of students without their knowledge!

Pearson, the largest education company in the world, conducted a “social-psychological” experiment on thousands of college students in the United States — without asking for permission — by adding language into some of its software programs and then tracking how much the messages affected problem-solving.

The experiment and results were discussed by Pearson researchers, who unveiled a paper on the matter at this month’s 2018 convention of the American Educational Research Association in New York.

Student privacy advocates have long been concerned with education publishing companies using students as “guinea pigs.” Companies, including Pearson, have inserted draft questions into annual tests for possible future use. Students and their families do not know when and which questions are part of the company’s own research on question effectiveness.

Education Week reported on the paper, titled “Embedding Research-Inspired Innovations in EdTech: An RCT of Social-Psychological Interventions, at Scale.” Nearly 9,300 students at 165 college and universities were part of the experiment during spring 2017 when they used MyLab Programming, a Pearson software product employed in conjunction with a computer programming textbook. The publication said:

Without seeking prior consent from participating institutions or individuals, the company embedded “growth-mindset” and other psychological messaging into some versions of one of its commercial learning software programs. The company then randomly assigned different colleges to use different versions of that software, tracking whether students who received the messages attempted and completed more problems than their counterparts at other institutions.

The results included some modest signs that some such messaging can increase students’ persistence when they start a problem, then run into difficulty. That’s likely to bolster growth-mindset proponents, who say it’s important to encourage students to view intelligence as something that can change with practice and hard work.
