Why Higher Learning Institutions Need a website

The advancement of the internet in the past two or so decades requires higher learning institutions, colleges and universities to have comprehensive reconsideration on how they market to prospective students through their websites. Learners need access to a free and virtually infinite pool of resources about the institutions they might like to attend.

The internet profoundly changed the way students and institutions seek out and select each other, but some experts argue that both aren’t capitalizing on the vast information that’s available.

The importance of a college website cannot be understated. Even though college websites have been around for 20 years, many higher education institutions still don’t understand their importance. While college websites have become ubiquitous, too many campuses continue to take their sites for granted.

The web is now mission-critical, meaning that if your web presence fails, your business operations fail. Imagine what would happen if your website disappeared tomorrow. Could your campus still function? What would be the financial impact? The impact on enrollment? The impact on your reputation and credibility?

Looking into the future, the web will continue to grow in importance. Soon, the physical campus will be replaced by the digital campus. 20 years ago Nicholas Negroponte wrote the seminal book “being digital”. Negroponte presents a strong argument that we are headed towards a future where everything that can be digitized will be digitized. We will make the transition from atoms to bits. We are slowly seeing this in higher education and when it does happen, the web will be the center of the entire college experience.
