Postsecondary education is now largely a requirement for entry into the middle class, but costs are causing traditional college and university programs to be increasingly out of reach for many. The Georgia Institute of Technology has had success with scalable online programs that provide quality education at a fraction of the cost of on-campus programs. However, there have been challenges in bringing these programs to fruition with a consistent student experience. Building on lessons learned, this paper proposes Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystems that combine personalized learning, intelligent tutoring, learning analytics, and other innovative educational improvements to address student and instructional needs in a holistic fashion.
