Effective use of available technologies such as Scaffold Designer can help colleges produce higher quality content at a lower cost.

Could online learning can help institutions provide a lower-cost education to more students? That’s a question that Richard Garrett, Eduventures chief research officer, examined recently in a brief on the Encoura website. According to a 2019 study on “published tuition,” fully online institutions “charge the least” at both the ungraduated and graduate levels — and the price has gone down as the number of students enrolled in these programs has gone up.

What’s needed, Garrett concluded, is a “creative [blend] of in-person and online learning” within institutions to “produce the best mix of cost reduction and high quality.”
