(IS-2013-71) The Connected Campus
This report from Siemens examines the technological revolution taking place in institutions of higher learning. IHLs need to ensure the best information and communications technology infrastructure is available, not just for their staff, but also for students – supporting communication anywhere, anytime on any device. Running a world-class IHL not only requires advanced infrastructure for the physical campus, but also the virtual campus which supports a rapidly growing cadre of distance learners. Millions of global students now earn their degrees completely online, paying top dollar. Others subscribe to free short courses. The Connected Campus fundamentally transforms the way we teach, learn and work – delivering operational excellence, unprecedented student and faculty engagement, and campus safety.
