President Obama recently announced a new initiative to address the question of higher education affordability. For decades, the cost of college has been growing faster than inflation, putting college out of reach for an increasing number of American families. However, if we are going to keep college cost increases down, information technology will have to play a key role, just as it has in a host of other industries. There are administrative costs and inefficiencies in higher education that are doing little to improve the quality of education but do make it less accessible to more students at a time when the opposite should be happening. ITIF will explore how IT can address these issues, looking at the experiences in various institutions and states and exploring what can be done at a federal level to improve productivity in higher education.

The indicator being discussed was inflation. The cost of college has been growing more than our inflation and Obama wants to make it more affordable. I did not realize that college accessibility has been decreasing recently.

NetClick enables you to make your presentations interactive which is perfect for getting student feedback instantly. This is extremely useful when you are explaining new things or demonstrating objects or textual content.

 

The service is free for teachers if students pay $5 per semester but there are some other licence options.
