As all the universities and college data show a clear slide and decline year by year. Few of the reasons being cited, more and more full courses being able to access online for free or more competitive alternative channels is offered online. Some industries are pushing for continuity professional certification and weight higher for those who do not possess them.
Employers are expected to hire someone ready to perform, not come to learn and undergo training and development. As most of the colleges and universities remain have a gap in what they teach and what the market in practice.
Pressure for alternative online channels and when different syllabus such as skill and competency certification continues to attract most working adults, since they know what they need to possess to be valuable for their current and future employer.

The Internet has been named as the Guru knows everything on the planet. Typically an internet user just needs to type what he or she knows for, will be capable of finding relevant information. More and more video content is providing information on how to perform certain things and also change most people’s reading habits. If you can see someone solve a specific problem on video in less than 15 minutes, do you want to spend a couple hours or day studying a thick physical book for it? Most of the new generation or generation Z is more used to micro learning and search on demand. If the traditional higher learning education institutions, colleges and universities continue to govern the text based content that even without considering upgrading it to where the market needed. For sure, the modern age has been a channel for acquired education and learning, if you can not adapt for the current and future need for the student and the market, it will continue to decline as one of the main institution pillars in the past.
