In order for this generation of students to reach their fullest potential, their learning environments need to reflect the way they communicate and go about their day-to-day lives. Technology plays a central role in the way all of us live our lives, so it’s important that universities are able to get the right balance of hardware, platforms and services for their staff and students to use, in order that they can work efficiently and collaboratively at whatever time and from whichever place suits them best.
