Campus Consortium to Conduct an Extending IT Support During and Post the Pandemic

Chicago, February 17, 2021: Campus Consortium, a global nonprofit education association, in collaboration with Cornell University, will be hosting a live EdTalk titled “How Cornell University Provides IT Support Before, During & After the Pandemic” on Thursday, February 18, 2021.

COVID-19 has impacted millions of lives globally. Unprecedented events accelerated the role of technology in teaching and learning and created a transformation imperative for higher education institutions worldwide. Educators adapted new methods of instruction, from in-person to online-only mode. Even as the pandemic eases, new processes, procedures, applications and tools will be required to meet future demands of students. The move to online-only mode for instruction and business processes prompted concerns related to the quality of remote educational instruction. Frequently students, faculty and staff struggle with technical issues causing inefficiency and a loss of productivity. In this webinar, our speakers Keyan T Williams, Assistant Director, IT Support Operations, Cornell University and Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President at Campus Consortium, will explain the significance of robust IT support for faculty and students who are getting up to speed with remote learning during the COVID-19 crisis. Hear about tools and processes that will help everyone on campus succeed with the current mix of remote and in-person instruction.

“As technology takes on a greater role in higher education during the pandemic, IT support has become imperative for delivering a seamless and engaging student experience. IT faculty and staff in colleges and universities must be well equipped and supported to deliver the experience students expect.” said Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President of Campus Consortium.

Who should attend: Higher education institutions, taking on the steep challenge of reinventing coursework and mastering newer technologies to connect with students, must attend this webinar. They would get expert recommendations shared by IT experts to ensure seamless engagements for an effective learning process.
