Collaborating on today's challenges for future resilience in Higher Ed

from  April 9, 2020 | 2 min read

In these tremendously challenging times, how we work together is changing every day. Nowhere is this truer than for Higher Education institutions already facing unparalleled uncertainty, while still working to deliver exceptional education. 

Find out how some are using their networks to adapt to the current crisis and the new world order in my chat with Trey Arrington, VP Operations at Spartanburg Methodist College, Keith Fowlkes of E&I Cooperative Services, and D2L's Director of Solutions Engineering, Ben Campbell.

Around the world, institutions like yours are working hard to move education online to continue to support students in achieving their goals. It's a big challenge.

The silver lining, as Trey points out, is we're all in this together. Across the sector, everyone's finding new and inspiring ways to collaborate and cooperate. Working with each other to learn, work, connect (digitally, of course!), and engage more than ever before.

At Unit4, we understand that keeping your people engaged and productive is a big challenge right now. How can you use the resources you have to adapt to this new normal so your students can continue to plan for their futures with as little disruption as possible?

To combat these challenges, we're working with our partners and connections in Higher Education to do our part to help you find a better way of working. A new approach that will prepare you for the future – no matter what it holds.  

So, we're offering Unit4 customers, and those we hope will soon be customers, a free six-month subscription to our Intuo employee engagement platform. It's what we use ourselves. 

With easy-to-deploy pulse surveys, advanced insights, and innovative engagement tools, it helps you bring your teams closer together every day. Free of charge for six months. Get up and running in 24 hours with no need for additional IT support. To find out more, contact us directly, or visit our website to get started. 

Also, our friends at D2L are working with institutions to ensure no learner falls behind during this period of isolation. D2L has developed a Quick Start Care Package to help institutions move to online course delivery quickly by drastically reducing implementation timelines while listening carefully to each customer’s unique needs.

E&I Cooperative Services is the largest and most experienced member-owned, non-profit purchasing cooperative serving the needs of education. As a trusted advisor to the education community, they offer over 120 competitively solicited contracts as well as solutions to help you source effectively, including Unit4 ERP and Student Management, as well as D2L's Brightspace Learning Management System.  

How are you working with your networks to adapt your institution for the current challenges, and for the future?
