Nelnet International partners with education sector leaders

Education and commerce platform provider Nelnet International has announced the launch of the Nelnet Education Leaders Forums in Indonesia.

The forums will bring together thought leaders, policymakers, customers, partners and practitioners from around the world to help solve some of the most demanding education challenges. The company is working alongside partners including the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN), the Indonesian Association of Private Higher Education Institutions (APTISI) and the Indonesia Australia Business Council (IABC) as it brings together the world’s best practices for the benefit of all.

“Nelnet Business Services works with more than 11,000 K-12 schools and 1200 higher education institutions globally to help them embed best practices within their organisations. As part of that division, Nelnet International’s experience helping organisations navigate the challenges of 2020 means we are well-placed to empower Indonesian schools and higher education institutions to become international leaders in successfully innovating and adapting to online learning,” said DeeAnn Wenger, President, Nelnet Business Services.

The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly accelerated a move toward digitisation and blended learning models worldwide, creating infrastructure challenges and stretching the sector’s capacity for change. Nadiem Makarim, Indonesia’s Minister of Education and Culture and co-founder of Gojek, the country’s first tech unicorn, has stated that “distance learning could be permanent”.

“COVID-19 has redefined teaching and learning models. The concept of university will become technology-driven, with tertiary leaders’ ability to adapt and reinvent their campus a key success factor. Those who respond proactively to this great reset will be the new leaders in higher education — the playing field has been leveled,” said Marantika.

The next Education Leaders Forum, targeting K-12 providers, will take place in April 2021.

“With education providers across Indonesia adjusting to the new realities of learning delivery, we’re excited to support them and come together to share learnings and insights,” said Wenger
