National University System is a US-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to make high-quality education accessible to adult learners.
NUS partners with affiliated universities and educational initiatives across the US, enabling students to master highly marketable skills at tuition rates that are much more affordable than those of other private universities.
Flexible learning in a new world
Making online education work
At the same time, online education still struggled with the perception of being inferior to the in-person experience. It wasn’t able to deliver a similar level of teacher-student interaction and give the same engagement results as the traditional model.
With Netguru’s help, NUS decided to challenge the status quo. Through an extensive “scoping session”, we were able to advise NUS on the direction of change. The decision was made to rebuild the existing platform to allow expansion and support the various needs of potential new affiliates.
Moving the platform forward with proven solutions
The upgraded platform created in collaboration with Netguru is better able to track students’ activities, give instructors more advanced tools to interact with students so they can build meaningful relationships, and grow student engagement.
Now the platform is functional, fully scalable, and generates high user engagement. NUS, with new partners ranging from universities to businesses that are using their education solutions for their staff, makes for a perfect example of how utilizing proper digital tools can help e-learning play a central role in the future of education.
