Around the world, schools and universities are transforming the way they teach, share, organize, prepare and research — and this transformation is extending to the management of facilities, transportation, and security. As the future of education unfolds, institutions are being forced to rethink their traditional models of learning, research, administration and student life.
Sameer Garde, President, Cisco India & SAARC said “We are delighted to collaborate with ISB to shape the future of digital education in India. Harnessing the power of digital and the Internet, students today are no longer passive receivers of knowledge; but active designers of their learning experience. Forward-thinking educators understand this and are transforming the way they teach, share, research and manage their campuses. Now more than ever, we have an opportunity to shape well-rounded, highly skilled students who can meet the demands of an increasingly digital world.”
In line with its commitment to help students connect, learn and succeed in the digital age, the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (ISB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cisco to build India’s first truly Digitally intuitive Campus. The MoU was signed by Dr. Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, ISB and Sameer Garde, President, Cisco India & SAARC.
Dr. Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, Indian School of Business said “The digital transformation in the education sector is indeed a must to address the challenges pertaining to technological disruption. The future of jobs is strongly connected with digital transformation, and in the context, the delivery of education must have a strong digital content. We are excited to have this important MoU with Cisco, and I am sure this will be a move towards digital education in India.”
ISB’s Digital Campus is based on Cisco’s highly secure core network, unified voice, video, and wireless communications and lays the framework for connected campuses, empowered educators, informed administrators and students who will have the tools they need for success in a digital world.
This initiative is part of Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) program, a long-term effort to partner with national leadership, industry, and academia to foster inclusive growth and innovation, countrywide.
