Even when cost isn’t a major factor, IT departments have a backlog of requests from the students, faculty and administration they support.
In the face of these challenges, education technology is expected to meet the needs of geographically distributed students and faculty. Education is being transformed by companies like Coursera and Udacity. These organizations often partner with nationally recognized universities such as Stanford and Princeton to enable students across the world to participate virtually in the classroom. Meanwhile faculty and industry experts are collaborating across the globe on new science and research.
As teams become more and more dispersed, effective collaboration can be a challenge. Educators need simple but effective solutions that facilitate collaboration while not taxing overwhelmed IT departments. This is why Teambox is seeing exponential growth in the education sector.
