After many weeks of dealing with the immediate challenges we’re all facing, it’s important that we take a moment to celebrate what the eCampus NZ community achieved in 2019.
We invite you to take a tour of our 2019 Year in Review.
At eCampus NZ, we set out to provide leading-edge, responsive online learning opportunities to Kiwis in our biggest cities and smallest towns. As we look at the 2019 Year in Review, it’s clear that our vision has become a reality. It was another outstanding year for eCampus NZ.
In 2019, we welcomed Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT) to the eCampus NZ platform.
We expanded our community of learners, with a 35.27% growth in enrolments, over 900 course occurrences and additional NZQA courses, short courses, and microlearning courses on offer.
We were frequently humbled by our learners’ determination to succeed. The eCampus NZ team worked hard to identify barriers to success and helped our learners break through them, resulting in improved learner success rates.
Put simply, more learners achieved more outcomes across more disciplines. Learner feedback reflected this, with 95% of survey respondents reporting that their courses met their expectations in achieving their goals.
In addition, eCampus NZ strengthened our links to tertiary organisations across the country and forged new industry connections to develop innovative new learning opportunities.
Internally, we fostered a culture of continuous improvement, with new initiatives to improve learner success, course development, communications, our use of data and analytics, and the eCampus NZ platform itself.
As we celebrate the successes of the eCampus NZ community, we also look to the future. At eCampus NZ, we are excited about the opportunities that NZIST will enable and look forward to continuing to deliver outcomes for all our stakeholders.
Ko te pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tīna. Seek out distant horizons; hold fast to those you attain.
