I was able to put together a one-hour training seminar for our team on how to use H5P and then our staff was able to really quickly build courses on the site.

Within a month, we had 14 programs up on the Moodle™ platform in some version and that was really made possible by the simplicity of building courses in Moodle™ with H5P.

About our panelists

United States colleges and universities are facing an enrollment crisis. It has short-term aspects impacted by factors such as COVID and the economy as well as long-term aspects impacted by factors such as changing demographics and the rise of alternative credentials. One often overlooked and underutilized strategy to meet this challenge is to recruit more international students. While international recruitment is most often pursued by elite universities, it is an option for all of higher education, including community colleges.

The panel will discuss the international opportunity in the context of the recruitment crisis and explore opportunities for taking advantage of the growing pool of international students.

This session will be led by Michael Feldstein, Chief Accountability Officer at e-Literate. He will be joined by a number of specialists in higher education, international student recruitment, and eLearning technologies.
