How Multi-Institution Partnerships in eLearning Create Value for Universities, Government and Learners
December 16, 2022

Collaborative endeavors between multiple educational institutions for eLearning have numerous advantages in creating value. Read on to find out more about the impact these multi-institution partnerships can make and how they drive value for universities, government, and learners alike.

1. Delivery of learning - how shared online learning resources bring incredible efficiency and growth for a network of colleges.

The State of Florida is a great working example of promoting a successful and beneficial multi-institution partnership on the university level. They already have an incredible track record of providing the best higher education system in the United States, as well as the lowest tuition rates in the country [1]. To further these initiatives, the State University System released a free software called MyFloridaFuture in early 2022 [2]. This online dashboard provides valuable data to any prospective college student, regardless of which university or college in Florida where they plan to attend, to help them make smart choices about their education future.

Data you’ll find on MyFloridaFuture includes: the amount of money a student can expect to earn by pursuing a career in a particular subject or industry offered by a Florida college or university; the loans the student can expect to have to take out to enroll in different college programs; and more.

All this information is designed to help students and their families choose the best route for their higher education journey. It not only increases efficiency for learners by displaying this data on a single platform at one time – completely free of charge – but it also establishes a network of transparency between the separate higher education institutions in Florida.

2. Scaling programs that work requires investments in software and public-private partnerships.

Scaling successful programs often requires a significant investment in software and technology infrastructure. This investment can be challenging for organizations to bear alone, particularly in the public sector. Public-private partnerships offer a potential solution to this problem, as they allow organizations to leverage the resources and expertise of the private sector to scale their programs and services. By partnering with private companies that specialize in software development and technology solutions, public organizations can more effectively and efficiently scale their programs to meet the needs of their constituents. These partnerships can also help to ensure the sustainability and long-term success of the programs, as the private sector partner may have a vested interest in the continued success of the partnership. In short, public-private partnerships can be a powerful tool for scaling programs that work, providing the necessary resources and expertise to help organizations reach their goals and make a greater impact.

3. White-label SaaS solutions are the key to multi-institution partnerships in higher education.

A white label SaaS is the ideal solution to carry out a multi-institution partnership for eLearning. It allows for the creation of a professional platform with an intuitive interface that is both easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. At the same time, you’re able to attach your own university or college name to it, so that it clearly represents your institution [3].

Not only can your white label SaaS partner help you create a software that features your own label, but it presents an opportunity for significant return on investment (ROI) for government partners, as well. The global market for SaaS is projected to grow by nearly 18% each year [4]. With 60% of remote learners in the US stating they plan to enroll in more remote classes in the future, it makes sense to invest in a useful and functional white label SaaS [5].
