A New Kind of Education Network Noodle Partners supports a growing network of great universities. Our online and hybrid programs enhance student-faculty engagement, raise capacity and resilience, lower operational costs, and leverage opportunities for collaboration between institutions. Better Than Conventional OPMs If you want to launch stellar online and hybrid programs and fill them with qualified students, we are more transparent, more flexible and less expensive than conventional OPMs (generally saving schools between $15,000 and $30,000 per student over the life of a program). We help universities strengthen their internal resources and tap into our network of providers to address competitive challenges and seize opportunities. Better Than Doing It Yourself Noodle invests millions of dollars each year in innovative tech, negotiates with providers on behalf of our whole network, and closely monitors performance against benchmark data to build excellent programs while saving schools and students money. Lacking those network effects, programs built in-house are generally undifferentiated and small (averaging under 30 students), even as they cobble together outside providers across core functional areas. Better Than Waiting Online is the fastest-growing segment in higher education; it’s unlikely to drop back below 50% of graduate school and adult learner enrollment even post-COVID. For innovative universities, using technology well can mitigate risk and add resilience, increase access to your programs, and generate tuition revenue to reinvest in key initiatives. We Help Your Faculty Do What They Do Best Noodle Partners leads teams through the challenges of an online transition, freeing up time for you and your faculty to focus on what matters most. Critically, we can leverage your school’s internal resources; many of our partners use their own on-campus instructional design teams. Rather than raise student:faculty ratios, we help you reduce net tuition a better way–by raising online capacity and making your support systems more efficient. Agile and Cost-Effective Colleges and universities have an opportunity to move to an agile approach, in which the infrastructure we jointly build to support online students supports on-campus learning as well. Our systems and contracts meet university needs, whether they involve running just a few online programs or creating a sophisticated infrastructure to better attract and support students, in ways that are financially superior to handling things in house or working with conventional OPMs. Collaboration at Scale Noodle Partners brings together best-in-class digital marketing, student recruitment, instructional design, student support and technology professionals to help our university partners create and scale exceptional learning experiences. Our approach has attracted dozens of the top public and private universities in the US, and each new one makes our network more useful to them all. We hope you’ll join us.
