The opportunities and needs for technology-enabled learning in higher education have changed drastically over the past three years, as have students’ learning preferences. Done well, a learning-first and multimodal strategy can make possible new, more flexible, and more relevant learning opportunities to attract an increasingly diverse student population.
Innovative instructors are pulling from the significant changes needed in early-pandemic remote teaching experiences to enrich their current practices and better engage students.

Students want seamless, engaging learning on a par with their commercial technology-mediated experiences, with a growing preference for online modalities.
The increased desire for and adoption of hybrid courses has blurred the lines between online and face-to-face, creating an emphasis on multimodal planning.
