Colleges and universities are always at the forefront of finding new ways to use technology or researching solutions for how to bring that technology into the classroom. The cloud is an immensely useful technology for businesses, but that doesn’t mean colleges can’t benefit from it as well!
Increasing Data Backup
College students need to be able to store their files and save them – no one wants to lose that term paper the night before the deadline! Luckily, data backup and overall security can be improved by using the cloud. No matter where students go on or off campus, their data will remain secure. After all, laptops and smartphones will go wherever the students go, and these won’t always be kept secure, but there are solutions for when they are victimized by hackers, ransomware, or computer viruses.
Integrating Video Collaboration
Whether it’s for an interview or remotely attending a lecture, the cloud can help. College campuses are expanding into the online sphere, after all, and that their buildings don’t have to be made of brick and mortar anymore. Professors can hold office hours even late at night or early in the morning and if the campus is closed due to the weather.
Expanding Campus Access
Not only can the cloud put students in touch with their professors any time of day or night, but the college itself no longer has to be constrained by its physical boundaries. Online classes become easier to offer with this technology and infrastructure in place. Plus, maps, faculty directories, and textbook lists can be accessed through mobile apps that use the cloud for additional storage. Plus, normal campus operations such as enrollment services can be handled through the cloud as well.
