Published on

Broadband networks are the essential infrastructure in the research and scientific realm but how will access to high-speed, high-bandwidth networks impact students’ journey of discovery, engagement and learning in the classroom? In the next 2 to 3 years, the U.S. will invest several billion dollars in building out and connecting broadband networks to institutions and communities in every state. Faculty and eLearning professionals need to join the early adopters of advanced networking applications and help to shape the future of teaching and learning where exciting tools, like simulations and immersive technologies, will redefine the classroom. Representatives from 3 research and education networks will stimulate your thinking of what’s possible with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited computing power.
Moderator: David Longanecker, President, Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education
(CO)
Presenters: Mike Abbiatti, Arkansas Research and Education Optical Network (ARE-ON); Stephanie Couch, Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC);
Sheri Prupis, NJEDge.Net (New Jersey's Higher Education Network)
