OPMs are a Subset of a Bigger Market

Even though I didn't really like the dune-buggy diagram (this was far more useful) I enjoyed this article as it offered a broader look at the Online Program Management (OPM) category and promised to cast the net even more broadly in the future. OPM providers "are for-profit organizations that help non-profit schools develop online programs, most often for Master’s level programs." 2U (formerly 2tor) is an example of an OPM and styles itself "a trusted brand steward and the partner of choice to the world’s top universities in bringing the best of themselves into the digital age." Anyhow, Feldstein writes that the new broader services "belong under a larger umbrella that we call 'Digital Enablement Services.' In general, colleges and universities are beginning to move from having a philosophical commitment to student success toward operational excellence at enabling student success."
