An innovative Australian education services company with expertise in preventing online college drop out rates will be offering its services to the US market.
Global Learning Support (GLS) will be attending the Learning Solutions Expo in Lake Buena Vista in Florida today to share its success story.
A pioneering innovator in the e-learning sector, GLS is working with leading education providers to significantly reduce drop out rates, which is the biggest challenge to the online education sector globally.
According to Bloomberg, MIT and Harvard reported only a 5 per cent completion rate of their online courses in 2012-13. 
Research shows while cost, lack of resources, and convenience are driving an ever-increasing number of students to online study; this trend is seeing a snowballing dropout rate.
GLS co-founder, Jarrod Nation, said the online drop out phenomenon was proving a huge cost to the sector with up to 92 per cent of students abandoning their courses in some cases.
“We are able to achieve a turn around for e-learning providers by creating a unique environment for students that facilitates, guides and encourages progression and clears the pathway to completion,” Mr. Nation said.
“Students need and want quality support, ongoing motivation, discipline and accountability during their studies to keep them on track. This is what GLS delivers.”
The Learning Solutions Expo will be held until March 27 at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista / 1751 Hotel Plaza Blvd. / Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
