Cisco is pleased to launch the new Higher Education blog, and we hope that you will be an active participant in this community of interest. We will be exploring topics that are critical to our key education customers, and we look forward to active and spirited discussion between our higher education customers and those of us within Cisco who focus on the education market.
We’d like to start out discussing some of the trends that we’re seeing in education, and how we believe that technology is helping colleges and universities to address some of their most pressing challenges: trying to do more with less, enhancing safety and security, and creating next-generation learning environments for the 21st century.
As the world shifts away from centralized, hierarchical control and puts more power in the hands of end users, Cisco brings a practical vision and real solutions to help public sector innovators stay ahead of cultural change. In an on-demand society, Cisco enables a connected way of living that can foster economic growth, expand access to public services, and keep people of all ages engaged. By harnessing the power of many ideas and voices, Cisco is inspiring new connections and creating new opportunities.
Cisco is a change agent in enabling quality education. In a connected, on-demand society, learning is everywhere, just a few keystrokes away. Cisco works closely with schools and higher education to anticipate and respond to the demand for new teaching and learning approaches that promote employability and social equity. Cisco delivers the secure, seamless communication and real-time interaction that students, faculty, and staff expect—while enabling a safe environment, improved administrative efficiency, and access to engaging, lifelong learning opportunities.
At Cisco, we’re working hard to help create a connected way of living and learning. Cisco® solutions give educational institutions the ability to create a connected ondemand learning environment — removing barriers to communications, enabling real-time interactions, and expanding access. Education opportunities are everywhere. Our goal is to help make those connections happen by streamlining campus operations and giving you the tools to enable access for any device at any time. Our vision is a connected campus that inspires students, faculty and staff to engage in lifelong learning.
