Ten New Technologies Transforming the Classroom
Cloud Computing to Integrate Technologies and Tasks
Students today expect to be able to communicate with professors and colleagues anywhere and on any device, moving the educational experience beyond the classroom. This is why Dena Speranza from Denison University turned away from the school’s legacy computer architecture to adopt the cloud and SaaS applications like the mobile communications platform, Dialpad. "At Denison University, we are always looking for new technologies born in the cloud that we can roll out to our entire campus – from students to professors to administrators – to help us bridge to the future and connect with today’s digital-first natives," said Speranza. "Dialpad integrates with tools like G Suite for Education, Office 365, group messaging, text and video conferencing. Many of our athletic coaches are having great success using Dialpad to text team members and potential recruits from right within the app. Faculty and staff are also using the app while traveling to maintain their Denison presence, no matter where they are in the world."
