Higher ed can fuel U.S. dominance in cybersecurity, AI and machine learning. To help meet the growing demand for tech professionals, we need an ambitious program similar in scope to the GI Bill.

Artificial intelligence—led by text-based chatbots—has infiltrated campus life, helping institutions improve communication, compliance and retention. Here’s insight into launching the technology.

Here’s how student service areas can use chatbots to keep students informed.

From admissions, financial aid and residence life to registration, student activities and food service, here’s how student service areas can use chatbots to keep students informed.

Here’s how students are engaging with chatbots at Winston-Salem State University and California State University, Northridge. 

Vendors discuss what higher ed institutions should consider when implementing AI into their student services.

What are the biggest challenges colleges and universities face when it comes to moving students around campus and to destinations in the surrounding community?

Operating shuttles without drivers and adding ride-share traffic on campuses raises questions about pedestrians. Here are three safety protection actions to take:

1. Reach out for resources.

With no sidewalks on the road leading from the campus of Garrett College in McHenry, Maryland, into town, students must walk along the edge of the state-maintained road.

At some colleges, students are playing an important role in developing high-tech transportation tools, including driverless shuttles. These four institutions provide hands-on experience in the transportation technology of the future.

Stanford University:

The Center for Automotive Research at Stanford has been including students in autonomous vehicle research since its 2008 launch. As part of a recent project, engineering students tested an algorithm to help driverless vehicles avoid obstacles.

Although Hurricane Irma halted progress, the new 63,000-square-foot library opened just a month behind schedule. It now provides students with space for using technology and overseeing building projects.

As driverless shuttles and ride-sharing become more widespread, consider these five strategies for integrating them with other campus transportation options.

With studies indicating that test success is relative to family income, high school quality and cultural identity, some schools are turning to other methods, including essays and short videos, to select prospective students.

Kim Rocco Shields is a producer and director who has collaborated with more than a dozen colleges and universities to produce engaging online instructional videos on topics ranging from history to biology.

Higher ed institutions are applying a cinematic engagement model with broadcast quality standards to the distance learning experience to capture student attention. 

IT leaders are easing concerns across campus about cloud migration—including security, accessibility and cost.

These are: Cloud security is better (or worse), migration is easy and there will be downtime.

Providers answer: What are the most prominent lingering concerns that campus IT administrators have about moving more data into the cloud?
