Description

Laptops, iPads, Smart phones, iPods, IoT sensors, e-readers are becoming the tools of choice for today’s faculty, students, alumni & parents. Computer labs are useful, however everyone wants real-time access to the information they need, virtually wherever they happen to be, including class information, student and faculty directories, scheduling, social networking, ticket purchasing and fundraising options, along with campus wide alerts such as weather conditions or class cancellations.
Wireless is being leveraged for Academic and Administrative efficiency. How effective are these applications? Our panel of education industry experts will discuss the opportunities and potential challenges in integrating wireless into our education systems.
