Gosh, who could they be thinking about?
“No members have ceased to operate and we have no evidence of any providers being faced with critical circumstances or considering closure,” Independent Higher Education Australia’s Simon Finn says.
However, IHEA says members need financial support, “for rapid capacity building so that course materials can be quickly adapted for quality online delivery.”
And they need “timely access to online platforms so that they can urgently up-skill teaching and support staff to manage these platforms.”
Anything in mind? “Open Universities Australia is an example of an established platform provider that is well placed to minimise disruption for all higher education students through sector-wide access.”
