Higher Education’s Symbiotic Relationship with EdTech: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Can campus tech help as well as hurt institutions struggling to maintain enrollment and tuition revenue goals? The right tools, adopted properly, can help attract and retain students by providing a more immersive and rewarding academic experience. But without effective leadership and change management, and even a fresh perspective at security, institutions risk ongoing declining results with the status quo or irreparable harm to their reputation. During this session, led by some of HP’s educational experts, we will examine these trends:

  • The Bad – why despite technology purchases, many institutions rarely see a return on their technology investments
