Solutions to contemporary problems are often digital. Most conundrums are met with a response of “there’s an app for that!” – even the Oxford English dictionary.

Digital solutions are popular with universities too, from learner analytics to fully online degrees and everything in between. But in a sector where regulation seems to be increasingly close, how can governing bodies ensure success from afar?

Senates and academic boards are the academic authority of a university. They are responsible for defining the educational character of an institution and exist to monitor an institution’s academic health.

They are also key to enabling the autonomy enjoyed by so many UK universities as it provides academic assurance to the university council or board, which in turn assures the regulator of its educational quality and standards.
