Reflections on an era of change

The world needs you to contribute.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

We are living in a time of transformation across a whole range of experiences, including communication, and this is directly impacting on the delivery of education services.

“In the old days, it was not unusual to find that, by the time new students received the course materials, quite a few had lost their initial enthusiasm and course drop-outs were quite high. In the future, a student who enrols online is likely to have the study material within an hour.”

while we make every effort to enrich the learning experience and provide as much support as possible, successful completion still requires committed input and application. “In some cases, students have to learn to be students again!”
