on November 12, 2013

Digital learning is forcing education institutions to rise to the same technology standards set by some of today’s leading corporations. After all, sufficient Internet capacity, excellent wireless local area network (LAN) coverage and top-notch technical support services are critical to providing students and teachers with unfettered access to online resources. But while schools must support 24/7 access to online resources, there are a number of factors they need to consider when creating an IT environment that can support digital learning. This Center for Digital Education white paper will explore the five key considerations that are driving schools to rethink how they support digital learning, the challenges of these factors, and how schools must harden their infrastructures in much the same way critical functions are hardened in the enterprise.
