We recently heard a higher education CIO speak about the necessity for a solid information technology infrastructure for schools and universities and their impact on the student experience with digital services:
“The baseline is always digital infrastructure,” said Sam Segran, the CIO of Texas Tech University.
Texas Tech prioritized infrastructure and internet bandwidth (a 40% boost) on and around campus and invested in mobile Wi-Fi hotspots and other devices to help connect faculty, students and staff in hard-to-connect areas. To meet the requirements for remote learning, the university also added to its cloud strategy to provide the scaling of services.
The federal COVID Relief package got our attention with the proposed more than $170 B-i-l-l-i-o-n for broadband access for educational institutions that are unable or unprepared to provide a consistent remote learning environment.
We are discussing the opportunities and challenges during next week’s webinar: Education TECH – Elevating Learning into the 21st Century.
We are going to explore how local and state agencies are adapting learning to the digital age and the opportunities for students, teachers, and innovative technology providers to prepare the next generation workforce while utilizing new and developing technology solutions.
