Last year, the Cisco Connected World Technology Report came up with a startling finding: In a poll of 2,800 respondents across 14 countries, 40% of college students and 45% of young professionals declared that mobility and social media access on the job was even more important to them than a high salary.

For slightly older workers, this is a major and surprising cultural shift. But it is one that has already been embraced by West Texas A&M University and its CIO, James Webb. To better serve its Millennial students, the university has deployed a flexible, pervasive learning environment based on a Cisco network that enables a multitude of devices. Offering mobile, more relevant learning options helps to prepare these students for the modern workplace while assuring that they receive a good education.

Other findings:

A recessionary economy is driving a strong urge for education across the US. Texas A&M’s support for today’s proliferation of devices is making all the difference for preparing these workers for the future. Hear James Webb discuss how his university is optimizing this powerful learning environment.
