New Educause report shows trends before pandemic hit

Survey data published by Educause last week showed that even before the pandemic arrived, students relied heavily on technology and IT services, but as the majority of colleges and universities have now moved classes online, students’ technology needs have increased dramatically. Educause’s 2020 Student Technology Report, which collected responses from more than 16,000 undergraduate students across 71 U.S. institutions before the pandemic and during its early stages, shows that technology issues like internet access, data protection and online accessibility were at the top of students’ minds even before the pandemic changed the way education is delivered. Betsy Foresman highlights the report's key findings.

Recreating the classroom experience — from home

When Sean Willems, who teaches operations management and supply chain analytics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, heard classes were going online this year, he decided to go all in. He spent most of his May and a few days in June converting a room in his house into a semi-professional video recording studio. More than 300 hours of work later, he'd developed the most sophisticated home set-up used by a university professor today. In an interview with EdScoop, he detailed the extensive project and admitted that while both he and his students appreciate what the studio can do, it still doesn't live up to the experience of an in-person education. Colin Wood took a closer look at his project.

UNCC adopts a unified security platform

IT security staff at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte said the adoption of a new tool has helped to more easily and comprehensively monitor users as they study and work from outside the campus. The tool, from Cisco, integrated many of the university's existing tools into a centralized platform. Jesse Beauman, assistant vice chancellor for enterprise infrastructure at UNCC, said the tool has allowed the university to easily and efficiently adapt to the changing dynamics of education during the pandemic. “Now we have a real live security ecosystem that’s flexible, that’s scalable, and more importantly, easy to use," he said. Betsy has the details.


Securing virtual education with agile, integrated security

Few colleges or universities could have been fully prepared for the speed or scope of the pandemic — or the security risks inherent in the expanded demand for virtual learning. Those security risks are pushing IT officials to institute integrated security platforms that support a zero-trust approach, reduce total operating costs and give them greater visibility of which people and devices are connecting to campus resources.
