Barbara Means, flexlearnstrategies,  April 4, 2015

Based on the investments reviewed for this report, it’s clear the foundation strives to produce insights that can shape future investments and uses of technology to enhance student success and higher education affordability. Although there was an overall positive impact of foundation-funded courseware projects on course completion rates, the challenge of reliably achieving positive outcomes at scale remains a major issue. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Pathways Project was the only project that had a positive effect of consequential magnitude. The Pathways project provides insights into what it takes to achieve consistently positive outcomes, but further work is needed to find ways to do so at lower cost to enable faster scaling.
