About the Event

Securely enabling today’s remote Learning Environment


While online learning has long been part of a modern university’s learning environment, it was a complement to on-campus learning.  Until now. 

Forced to pivot to a 100% virtual learning environment, universities have also been forced to deal with the reality of supporting far flung foreign student populations.  Remote learning half a world away brings challenges that require more than just a local internet connection.

This session will focus on requirements needed to securely enable this global remote learning environment.
