Technology has the potential to revolutionize the traditional teaching and learning process. It can eliminate the barriers to education imposed by space and time as well as dramatically expand access to lifelong learning. The higher education landscape is at the crossroads of an amazing digital shift.
Higher education is faced with complex disruption from a changing student body. These students are are digital natives expecting a more intuitive experience fostering positive outcomes. This is where a digital campus, or smart campus, plays a role in transforming the lives it touches. Innovative institutions recognize the importance of true transformation using technology. This enables friction-less, touch-less, and intuitive experiences driven by a digitally connected community.
Higher education campuses are epicenters of activity. For that reason, leveraging smart campus strategies can improve the experience of students, faculty, administrators, researchers, practitioners, and communities.
As technology changes and more campuses become smart, higher education institutions need to adapt for a quick and responsive experience as well as next-generation technologies. A smart campus technology architecture should include such layers as presentation/channels, analytics and automation, data platform, integration, enterprise applications, infrastructure, and security and risk.
