According to Ovum’s 2014 Enterprise Insights survey, 56% of institutions will replace, transform, or enhance their VLE solutions during the next 18 months. This suggests a lack of satisfaction with VLE and a potential sea change in the competitive landscape if institutions choose to switch out incumbents in favour of new providers.
Higher education is on the brink of radical transformation, where long-standing beliefs about teaching and learning are changing and online learning platforms (OLPs) have become mission-critical solutions that are of paramount importance for supporting institutional teaching and learning strategies.
The OLP has evolved from the traditional virtual learning environment (VLE) to support the next generation of online learning. Although the traditional VLE has successfully enabled course management and administration, it has fallen short in delivering on the promise of innovating teaching and learning.
Ovum’s 2014–15 ICT Enterprise Insights Survey revealed that over 30% of institutions will replace or transform their OLPs over the next 18 months. This suggests that OLPs, with their flexibility and agility, are more likely to support next-generation online teaching and learning. However, the current IT landscape in higher education is flooded with OLP providers, making it confusing for institutions to determine which to partner with.
With this in mind we are delighted to share with you an edtech report released by Ovum, a leading industry analyst. The report compares all of today’s top VLE vendors in one comprehensive study. It’s a valuable, essential summary for any institution considering a switch to a new platform.
