Washington, DC, June 10, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Global Academy Online, a program and systems provider to colleges and universities, has invented and initiated a 24/7 online institutional strategic planning and assessment program tool. The online system addresses the spiking demand for fluid, dynamic institutional planning brought about by the online revolution in both higher education and industry.
According to Dr. Fred DiUlus, the father of online education ratings and CEO of the firm, this radical change in the frequency of strategic planning required assessments are fueled by increasing demands for new technologies including social networking and innovative fingertip communication applications. Traditional higher education, states DiUlus is struggling to keep up with online education demand and missing many of the opportunities that full integration of online leaning provides.
American schools, DiUlus warns, are faced with increasing challenges for students brought on by an onslaught of global competition unlike anything ever experienced in higher education. The number of schools currently being forced into bankruptcy and dissolution is unprecedented in the history of higher education In America. “Schools who are not on top of this,” he says, “are headed for extinction.”
For small colleges and universities facing ongoing extensive budget cuts because of an abysmal economic climate, traditional priced strategic planning consulting services are cost prohibitive. “Our system cuts the cost by two thirds and permits leadership to contribute and tweak the process as they see fit 24/7,” says DiUlus. “The Academy system makes it affordable for any school’s budget, no matter how large or small.”
Global Academy Online is a long time pioneer in the dynamic online education field and publishes Best Worst Online Degree Programs, a free eBook rating of online colleges and universities. The Academy contributes extensively to the expansion of traditional schools into online degree programs and systems.
