Student Inquiries Grow by 96 and 195 Percent, Respectively, at King and Touro, through Learning House
LOUISVILLE, KY (PRWEB) MARCH 02, 2016
The Learning House, Inc. (“Learning House”), a leading technology provider of solutions that enables universities to thrive in today’s competitive higher education landscape, is shining a spotlight on two partner schools that are leveraging the company’s offerings to help meet their online education goals. This is becoming increasingly important as the prevalence of online learning at higher education institutions is on the rise. In fact, a recent Babson Survey Research Group study found that almost 71% of chief academic leaders view online learning as “critical to their long-term strategy.”
- King University in Bristol, Tennessee, faced the challenge of maintaining its brand identity while marketing itself as an institution able to combine the quality of traditional learning with the flexibility of an online format. Through Learning House, King University grew and developed its online campus to include an associate degree, 13 undergraduate degrees and three master’s degrees. From 2013 to 2015, student leads grew by 96 percent, and applications increased by 54 percent. King University was recently named the third-best online college in Tennessee.
- Touro University Worldwide (TUW) was struggling with enrollment numbers and market share and needed to make a change. The goal was to offer degree programs designed to meet the needs of adult learners, professionals and the underserved. Leveraging Learning House, among other strategies, TUW with a new leadership team grew quickly, with a 195% increase in student leads and a 353% increase in new student starts. The school now offers 11 different online programs, and is adding more.
“We know how critical the online learning experience is and will continue to be for students and higher education institutions,” said Todd Zipper, CEO of Learning House. “Today’s higher education landscape has completely changed, and we’re excited to be a driving force in helping colleges take on this new dynamic by making online education more accessible to students across the country.”
“The Learning House provides us with a great deal of insight and expertise on how to effectively grow and manage our online learning programs,” said Sarah Clevinger, the Director of Marketing and Communications at King University. “In particular, we appreciate the customized approach that they take to ensure our specific needs are being met, which is instrumental to our success.”
“Before our partnership with Learning House, the previous leadership encountered challenges in establishing and maintaining our online program,” said Dr. Yoram Neumann, CEO of TUW. “Now after management’s strategic turnaround, and with the help from Learning House, we can better meet the needs of those students looking to challenge and grow in new ways, and are proud to see a dramatic increase in the number of students to graduate in both the graduate and undergraduate tracks.”
King University and TUW are just two of the more than 75 universities across the country that are benefitting from Learning House’s hands on approach to creating comprehensive online education solutions through its cloud-based technology platform.
