When faced with something as unpredictable as the global pandemic, colleges and universities had to pivot their tech strategies rapidly to meet the needs of students, faculty, and staff. Technology is the key to keep students learning and engaged on or off campus.
When students come back to a physical learning environment, there will be greater expectations of how they’re receiving their education. With an ever-growing list of technologies that can enhance the educational experience, now is the time to start planning what your institution can implement for summer, fall, and beyond. So, what should you look for when sorting through providers?
Implementing an online bookstore to manage all of the course material logistics doesn’t mean it is necessary to get rid of the on-campus store. Campus stores can be a central location where students frequently gather to shop for spirit wear, grab coffee and snacks, and meet up with peers. Mitchell Technical Institute has partnered with us to manage their course materials while they focus on selling tools, spirit wear and other goods to support their programs, scholarships, and more.
