In the higher education landscape, change is touching every ivy-covered brick quadrangle and laptop station at Starbucks wherever students learn.

- Where and how students acquire their post-secondary certificates or diplomas and sometimes badges increasingly varies just as does the description of the traditional' college student.

- Colleges and universities increasingly are putting more focus on ensuring that students successfully complete their degrees and do so in a reasonable amount of time. The freshman flunk-out course, long a staple for weeding out the non-college ready, is ceding ground.

As a result, the course materials industry also is confronting change. Change is not just the migration from print to digital but how to offer and deliver resources that will help each student successfully navigate individual courses and move toward successful completion of a degree.
