Market Insights & Program Strategy

Research. Differentiate. Deliver.

Not long ago, most schools reviewed academic offerings once every five-to-seven years. It’s no longer sufficient to scrutinize your portfolio so infrequently in such a competitive and evolving market.

Collegis has a deeply experienced team that leverages our first-hand experience to help you develop an infrastructure that attracts students and then to design and deliver those courses.

Portfolio Growth Assessment

Build on program strengths by evaluating your current portfolio for growth against consumer and market inputs. You should leverage your brand and programmatic strengths to win in your local geographies, first. Then, by applying a comprehensive analysis of consumer demand, market dynamics and competitive differentiation, you can begin to determine and prioritize programmatic and market opportunities by considering the following inputs:

  • Employment data
  • Conferral data
  • Consumer demand data
  • Competitor research

Course Development

Often, faculty are being relied on to produce their own online courses – sometimes at a fierce pace – in order to meet the demand of program development. This can result in varying levels of quality, consistency and effectiveness.

Collegis has a deeply experienced team, leveraging proprietary development tools, a foundation of best practices and the experience of building thousands of courses for more than 50 college partners over nearly two decades. We can provide a full spectrum of course development services, including:

  • Instructional Design
  • Content Development
  • Web, Interactive and Media Production
  • Video Production
  • Course assembly in your Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Learning Technology Engineering
  • QA Testing

Faculty Development

In a best-case scenario, faculty receive training and ongoing support in the use of the LMS, other learning technology tools and online pedagogy. This is something not every school has the resources to deliver in an effective and consistent way.

The Collegis Academic Services team is made up of professionals with backgrounds in both academic leadership and student support roles. We’ve developed and deployed training experiences that are effective, practical and immediately valuable to teaching faculty members. Our model uses a mix of self-paced online learning, online synchronous sessions and face-to-face training to build skills in critical areas. Beyond formal training sessions, we also offer ongoing one-on-one coaching to faculty as they meet and overcome challenges in their online classrooms.

Learning Technology Consulting

An effective learning technology ecosystem is made up of technologies and tools that are constantly in need of improvement, integration and expansion in order to have the most positive impact on faculty and student success.

Collegis brings twenty years of experience in supporting students, faculty and staff in the effective application of learning technology to improve learning outcomes. Our team offers expert guidance and support in choosing and implementing the best technology solutions to meet your needs. We offer:

  • LMS
  • Web Conferencing Systems
  • Video Platforms
  • Library Databases
  • E-textbooks
  • Virtual Labs
  • Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality

Content Licensing

Since early 2020, there’s been a dramatically increased demand for colleges and universities to deploy new – or expand existing – online content offerings. While this sounds like an easy choice to make, the reality is that many institutions don’t have the internal capacity or in-house expertise to meet the demand as quickly as is needed.

Collegis manages a library of 70 courses offering in-demand, online programs. Additionally, we offer a large library of non-credit learning that institutions can leverage for professional, career and skill development of their students.
