Mobility: Transforming the Learning Enterprise
Higher education, like the world it serves, is being fundamentally transformed by mobile technology. Ever-lighter and thinner laptop and tablet computers give faculty, students, and administrators the freedom to work, collaborate and co-create anywhere. Digital coursework, educational applications, and even entire libraries are available at the touch of a button, and distance learning empowers larger student communities while reducing costs.
Mobile technology is streamlining internal processes as well. Long lines at the registrar's office are a thing of the past, and accounting has gone digital with mobile payment and other POS innovations. Better campus-wide connectivity preserves vital administrative and emergency functions, and custom apps give institutions exciting new ways to communicate with stakeholders.
Along with mobile innovation of laptop, tablet and convertible computers, the rise of mobility creates new demands on IT management, capacity, and security. A trend toward Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies that encourage educators to bring home devices for use on department networks further complicates IT integration. Strong and consistent best user practices and up-to-date IT protocols help mitigate risk, but colleges and universities must be able to accommodate a growing assortment of devices on campus networks and beyond.
