EDUCAUSE 2015 – one of the leading events in higher education – will take place starting on October 27th in Indianapolis, Indiana. The conference gives national education experts a chance to hear from industry leaders and learn about the latest technology developments in higher education.

Here at Cisco we’re excited to return to EDUCAUSE again this year as we explore the new possibilities technology and the digitization of education can bring to colleges and universities. This includes solutions that help students to Learn without Limits.

In the past, learning has been limited by time and geographic constraints. But with the Internet of Everything (IoE), new opportunities are opening up for students to move beyond the limits of traditional education. We’re looking forward to exploring how IoE, cloud, mobility, and collaboration technologies – among many others – are being used to help educators engage with students in new and exciting ways. These new environments will help students learn anytime, anyplace, and on any device.

If you’re attending EDUCAUSE 2015, come visit us at Booth 1302, where we will be showcasing some of our Cisco Education solutions. Joining me at the conference will be:

  • Mary Schlegelmilch, Business Development Manager, Education
  • Tony Morelli, Vice President, SLED East
  • Kim Majerus, Vice President, SLED West

We’re also excited that our friends at the Universityof La Verne will be presenting a session at this year’s event on Thursday, October 29th at 8:00 AM in Meeting Room 140 titled, “The Digital Revolution at University of La Verne.” Here are the presenters:

  • Bryan Best, Assistant Director of InstructionalTechnology, University of La Verne
  • Jim Haskins, IOE Solutions Specialist, Cisco Systems, Inc.
  • Hany Mohamed Seyam, Senior Director of IT Infrastructure, University of La Verne

The University of La Verne is a great example of a university that’s transforming to create digital learning and become a digital campus. We’re excited to hear about the outcomes the university has realized thus far, including offering better access to learning, increased security, and improved student services.
