Digital Capabilities in Higher Education, 2016: E-Learning


Our definition of e-learning is learning that involves a web-based component, enabling collaboration and access to content that extends beyond the classroom. Developing e-learning capabilities and investing in e-learning technologies can help higher education institutions gain a competitive edge in attracting and retaining students while preparing faculty to thrive in a next-generation digital learning environment. This report examines the status of e-learning maturity and deployment in higher education. The maturity and deployment indices are based on contributions to the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service.
