At universities today, there is growing pressure on faculty to conduct and publish research. And according to a recent survey, hiring committees at research-intensive universities look at publishing as a primary factor when they’re considering assistant professor candidates. As a top priority for both faculty and staff, researchers should be given every opportunity to thrive. But without the right tools, collaborating on research projects with partners at other institutions can be a challenge. Here’s how Dropbox Education is making it easier for leading research teams to easily share data with partners around the world.
To stay in sync with their students and peers, university faculty need to coordinate a steady flow of coursework and research files. But sharing large databases and files can be a time-consuming process. That’s why nearly 81% of university IT leaders plan to boost cloud spending to provide faster access to resources, improved security, and easier data management. In part three of our Collaboration in Higher Education series, we’ll look at how faster sync can help facilitate coursework, lower costs, and strengthen data security.
At universities today, people rely on a wide range of specialized apps, from learning management systems to identity management solutions to research annotation tools. The question is: Do all of those tools work well together or are they slowing down workflows? In part two of our series on collaboration in higher education, we’ll look at how integrating existing tools with Dropbox Education can help faculty, staff, researchers, and students streamline the way they work.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing are pillars of higher education. Instead of working in silos detached from other educational spaces, universities can leverage technology to break down barriers. This creates opportunities to drive efficiency, productivity, and innovation in higher education and research. Today, we’ll show you how IT admins can leverage Dropbox Education to improve visibility, control, and security on their campuses.
Arkansas State University faces a unique set of demands. With 10 different campuses in the Arkansas State University System, professors often find themselves shuttling between campuses. And that makes it a constant challenge to ensure students and faculty always have access to the resources they need. To overcome these challenges, the Arkansas State IT team focuses on providing faculty the right technology. One of the tools they use to ensure a world-class education for students is Blackboard Learn™, Blackboard’s flagship learning management system (LMS). And now the school is taking faculty success to a new level by integrating Blackboard Learn with Dropbox Education.
