Global higher education, globalization, technology, accountability, change, e-learning
Technology, globalization, and electronic learning make the business of higher education more complicated and competitive each day. Innovation and change in global university instruction require inventive technology in response to a knowledge economy where students are engaged in rapid innovative technology adaptation required by a constantly changing world. In contrast, instruction has historically been contained on campus, using face-to-face instruction. But, as the end of the second decade of the twenty-first century unfolds, significant changes are being undertaken in global universities to accommodate the needs of more students, different students, and challenged students by using e-learning. Global university instruction has failed to keep up with the latest in technological and pedagogical innovations during the past twenty years. As a result transformative learning technology has forced most of the global higher education community to examine if not implement technological applications for instruction and delivery, often categorized as e-learning.
