  16. 16. Why ‘Integrate your mojo’? • Academia is a great place for fluid, easy interactions that help people think deeply • But your VLE/LMS is more like a classroom – enclosed and didactic • *Unity lets you bring the spirit of your campus to the IT services you provide – an approach we sum up as ‘Integrate your mojo’.
