Introduction

European higher education faces international competition, rising student expectations and budget constraints. The recession threatens an industry reliant on public funds. Struggling to increase quality, this region is committed to providing low-cost education. VLEs will be critical to an institution's ability to meet student expectations and address long-term cost and scalability concerns.

Scope
  • Examines the culture and funding structure of higher education in Western Europe.
  • Analyzes the vendor landscape and market penetration of VLEs in European higher education.
  • Offers insight into trends toward online teaching and learning tools and recommendations for overcoming user-adoption challenges.
Highlights

The global economic crisis has spurred a shift toward online learning in higher education.

Institutions are competing for students and those that can provide flexible, convenient options will come out on top.

VLE vendors entering Europe are challenged by a market crowded with legacy and homegrown solutions.

Reasons to Purchase
  • Understand the changes higher education faces in the aftermath of an economic crisis.
  • Recognize the issues unique to institutions in Australia, France, Germany, the UK and US and how they influence technology decision-making.
  • Gain insight into the scope of the higher education market and opportunities for market penetration.
