The computer has become the prime method for delivering education in recent years, and that trend is likely to accelerate.
When it comes to face-to-face classes, students are using computers to take notes, conduct research, write term papers and take exams. Textbooks are increasingly being offered in online-only versions, often at a much lower cost than their printed counterparts. Digital textbooks can include multimedia content that enhances learning, and updates to content can be rolled out quickly and easily.
In addition, more and more courses are being offered online via distance education to cater to those with busy schedules or health concerns. Computer technology allows instructors to offer real-time lectures from anywhere in the world or create content for anytime access.
And as students increasingly prepare for technical careers such as coding, video editing, web design and others, computers have become a requirement. Visit any educational institution from an elementary school to a research university, and it's a safe bet that every student will spend some or all of their day at a computer keyboard.
So whether you're a student or a teacher, educational success will depend in large part on the computer you'll be using to complete assignments and access course materials. And because all work and no play makes, well, you know, that computer will likely also serve as an entertainment platform for music and video, a social media tool for keeping up with friends and a gaming platform when it's time for a break from your studies.
Lenovo's offerings for students and educators include the ThinkPad E15 Laptop, featuring 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processing and AMD Radeon™ RX discrete graphics, plus up to 16GB of memory. The ThinkPad E15 also supports dual-drive storage for extra capacity as well as speakers by Harman, advanced Dolby Audio™ and Skype for Business-certified microphones to help chat with friends and family and keep up with distance education courses.

When it comes to keeping up with those late-night study sessions, Lenovo's ThinkPad T490s may be just the ticket.
