Delivering on 2U's commitment to transparency announced last year, the 2019 Transparency Report is grounded in six core pillars—University Oversight & Accountability; Marketplace Openness; Access; Affordability; Quality; and Outcomes—and provides an overview of portfolio-wide data across 2U-powered degree programs, boot camps, and short courses.
"While COVID-19 has thrown online education into the spotlight like never before, the need for sustainable, accessible and affordable, blended, relevant, and high-quality online learning will extend far beyond the pandemic," said 2U Co-Founder and CEO Christopher "Chip" Paucek. "Now is the moment to push for greater transparency across the industry and demonstrate clearly that online education can deliver successful student outcomes. We hope the release of our inaugural Transparency Report will encourage others in the industry to embrace greater openness and foster a higher education system that is more accessible, affordable, blended, relevant, and high quality."
The report is designed to help students, universities, and policymakers better understand and assess the role and value that responsible education technology providers like 2U play in building high-quality educational offerings that deliver great student outcomes.
Key data highlights from the 2019 Transparency Report include:
The Transparency Report follows the release, earlier this year, of the inaugural Gallup-2U Graduate Outcomes Benchmark Report, which found that alumni from 2U-powered degree programs felt engaged and academically challenged and have thrived post graduation. Also this year, 2U released its Learning Experience Framework (LXF), a collection of research and learning science-supported principles for designing rigorous and engaging online learning experiences. Together, the Transparency Report, Gallup data, and LXF demonstrate 2U's industry-leading commitment to delivering high-quality online education and fostering greater openness.
