Next generation students perfer post-secondary courses that gamify learning

Implications - Comparable to e-commerce shopping versus brick and mortar retail; post-secondary educational facilities now seek to provide unique tech-incorporated classes that encourage practical learning instead of online courses.

This shift in college and university classes showcases the importance of technological evolution in various industries.
