A lot has changed in higher education over the past 30 years. Increasingly, tablets and smartphones are replacing textbooks and notepads, while large, face-to-face classrooms are becoming virtualized, personalized, and mobile.
Flat World, a Washington D.C.-based technology company, has produced an infographic demonstrating just how much has changed in higher ed since the days of Thriller, big hair, and mix tapes.
More and more students and professors are embracing technology, and innovation in the tech sector will only improve education across the board. Companies, like Flat World, that are using technology to reduce the cost of textbooks and create more affordable degree options are the catalyst to reinventing the way institutions approach learning.
