Benefits for students

Better learning, better access and a better student experience: UBC’s more flexible approach to teaching and learning means today’s students can learn when, where and how they like. Benefits include:

  • Improved learning outcomes resulting from evidence-based and technology-enabled teaching methods
  • More choice in different kinds of learning: online, face-to-face, blended, MOOCs
  • Day or night; on campus or off: flexible learning delivers more scheduling options
  • Enhanced personalization of degree programs
  • More just-in time learning options for career learners
  • Improved learning experiences, including more experiential and community-based learning options
  • More global learning options
  • More open content—learning materials are often free and not restricted to students registered in a degree program
