Esports (or competitive video gaming) is experiencing phenomenal growth, and college-age youth are critical to its popularity.

An Identity Framework for Higher Education Systems

Colleges and universities have an opportunity to make learning more accessible than ever—but first, they must solve a technology problem.

It’s time to change this approach: the results must justify the expense.
