Our current models of learning need to evolve. Traditional institutions see year-over-year enrollment declines and lingering questions on the real value of a degree. At the same time, we are also experiencing rapid technological advancements that make learning more accessible than ever before. There’s never been a better time to reimagine our education ecosystem and pioneer a new approach.
The JFFLabs Lifelong Learning incubated practice area builds intentional connections between systems and learners, and amplifies learner voice in program and product design to create a future-focused, learner-centered ecosystem.

The Outcomes for Opportunity (O4O) initiative
