Many campuses, regardless of size, face difficulty in implementing mobile solutions. You might be at a larger campus with extensive staffing and expertise, but you can't get everyone on the same page. Or maybe you work on a smaller campus, have great intentions to go mobile but don't have the right resources. What's the secret sauce that makes it work? Collaboration? Justin Hammond and Leslie Dare spearheaded a mobile initiative at NC State that epitomizes how campus partnerships can win the day.
As more and more applications migrate to the Cloud, the challenge of maintaining an integrated ecosystem grows increasingly difficult, and essential. New product categories like Integration Platform as a Service (iPaas) help streamline the spiderweb of traditional point-to-point integrations while shifting the effort from the shoulders of high-skill engineering resources to the fingertips of ‘citizen developers’ with no-code, drag-and-drop interfaces. These new solutions will give institutions the tools they need to define their portfolio-wide student ecosystem, and allow Oracle to deliver out-of-the-box integrations so that schools can concentrate resources on mission critical projects.
eTextbooks have emerged over the past 10 years as a cost-effective and more engaging option to print textbooks. Delivering these digital materials on the first day of classes sets students up for success.
Oregon State University has over 30,000 students and is well known for its distance education program, with more than 47% of students out of state or international. The OSU College of Engineering needed to provide an on-campus, lab-like experience anytime on any device. With virtualization from Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop and virtual graphics acceleration from NVIDIA GRID, the IT team is able to deliver heavy graphics and compute applications like AutoCAD, MatLab, and Cadence for students around the world.

Princeton University’s web team had a complex and overwhelming digital ecosystem comprised of many different websites, created from pre-built templates and hosted exclusively on internal servers.
Fast forward six years: Princeton continues to manage a their multisite and flagship endeavors on the open-source Drupal platform, and have seen some great results since their migration back in 2011. However, this success did not come overnight. Organizational buy-in, multi-site migration and authentication were a few of the many challenges Princeton ran into when making the decision to move to the cloud.
As an IT Pro in Higher Education, you know the multitude of challenges you face on a daily basis. From unstable budgets, to the constant need to innovate just to keep up with today's market, it seems like you are constantly being asked to do more with less. Luckily, there is a solution.
In the new evolving world of educational environments, educators and students alike have been finding common ground in the benefits of innovative classroom design, technology enhanced active learning, lecture capture and distance learning. These new teaching methods look to solve concerns of information retention, generational learning differences and ultimately facilitating the enhancement of teacher and student engagement.
