Dell is partnering with colleges and universities to create a digital learning environment to empower the students and faculty with the tools required to face the challenges of the 21st-century workforce.
The demands on IT are growing more complex as colleges and universities provide students with access to learning anytime, anywhere and on any device. Dell is offering comprehensive solutions to address the IT needs of higher-education institutions.
IT needs of college or university are incredibly diverse depending on their academic goals, student body and campus infrastructure, but what is consistent across all of higher education is the imperative to graduate students ready for the workforce, Dell said.
Dell offers instructional technology to deliver online content and engage students in learning and high performance computing (HPC) solutions to accelerate research initiatives. Dell data management solution applies data driven analytics to track student progress and improve student retention and help turn data in powerful insights.
Dell has also started Dell Education Challenge, as part of the Dell Social Innovation Challenge to inspire college and university students across the globe to develop projects to innovate primary education worldwide. Through the Dell Education Challenge and personalized learning solutions, Dell helps prepare students for their future careers.
