WWT is committed to supporting higher education institutions in achieving the vision of lifelong learning for all beyond high school. Universities, community colleges and professional development organizations are cornerstones and lifeblood in our communities. Digital technologies are the thread that connects their leaders, students, employees, researchers, and community members. We're here to help.
Students have sophisticated expectations about digital maturity, consistency and university-provided tools. Institutions are evolving the vision for their digital ecosystems and the “digital consumer” experiences they use to engage with students.
Technology creates warm human connections between faculty and staff to operate as a connected unit for each other and their students. Tools to drive workflow, employee connection, work efficiency and organic collaboration are built through integrations between many enterprise solutions and systems.
Faculty, staff and student researchers have unique computing needs while also following institutional practices around data security, authentication and hardware use. Knowing how to provide researchers with autonomy, flexibility and analytics power in their work while supporting their compute needs is our specialty.
Investing in modernizing and streamlining enterprise environments is critical to scaling the institution’s resources for the long haul. Institutions are designing and delivering services to meet student expectations and staff’s ability to serve students in a cohesive, synergistic way.
Consider This… is a monthly rotating feature offering insight into technology within higher education.
Digital solutions break down barriers to enrollment. Students face many barriers to applying for admission and enrolling in a higher education institution. When talented students aren't able to find the resources they need - or have the perception that they don't have the potential for success - we see tragic missed opportunities for tremendously talented youth to grow into the leaders they can become.
Digital solutions can help students bridge these barriers to make continuing education and life successes more attainable for all.
For many years, higher education has been talking about how admissions are impacted by providing students and prospective students with the most effective - and most basic - digital tools, websites and mobile apps possible.
In 2011, College Board published a study about the complexity in college admissions and it impacts students considering their higher education options.
In 2012, EdWeek shared leadership about the digital divide in admissions.
In 2019, Econofact published a study about how high achieving students aren't applying for admission as often or at highly competitive institutions.
And, of course, this is a predominant theme in 2020 -2021 publications.
We are working to make a difference. WWT can help you improve your institution's digital tools for prospective students to recognize their potential for success.
