Colleges And Universities Choose Dell To Personalize Learning And Power Academic, Administrative And Research Innovation

Dell today announced that colleges and universities are partnering with Dell to create a digital-learning environment to support their students and faculty with the tools and access they need to prepare for the challenges of the 21 st-century workforce. From the data center to the device, Dell works with schools to provide simple, affordable and manageable solutions to address their IT needs and personalize learning for students. The company will showcase its comprehensive set of higher-education solutions at Educause 2013 in booth 1301, including the recently unveiled family of Dell Venue tablets.

Developing entrepreneurial skills and providing tools and resources also happens through the Dell Education Challenge, a program in its second year and part of the Dell Social Innovation Challenge to inspire college and university students across the globe to develop projects to innovate primary education worldwide. This year’s semi-finalists will compete for $30,000 in seed funding from Dell and gain mentorship to put their ideas into action. Through the Dell Education Challenge and personalized learning solutions, Dell helps prepare students for their future careers.

“At Dell, we know that the IT needs of a college or university are incredibly diverse depending on their academic goals, student body and campus infrastructure,” said Jon Phillips, director of worldwide Education at Dell. “But what is consistent across all of higher education is the imperative to graduate students ready for the workforce. Dell is committed to delivering schools the solutions they need to personalize learning and prepare students for successful careers.”

The demands on IT are growing more complex as colleges and universities provide students with access to learning anytime, anywhere and on any device. A partner to a growing number of higher education institutions across the country, Dell designs solutions to address specific challenges for higher education based on its years of expertise. Bringing innovation to the classroom, Dell offers instructional technology to deliver online content and engage students in learning and high performance computing (HPC) solutions to accelerate research initiatives. Dell also empowers colleges and universities with its education data management solution that applies data-driven analytics to track student progress and improve student retention and help turn data in powerful insights.

To support these latest innovations in higher education, Dell’s provides schools with end-to-end capabilities to build a reliable, secure and affordable IT infrastructure from the data center to the device. Dell’s virtual lab solution gives students access to campus lab resources and applications from anywhere through desktop virtualization technology and Dell Wyse thin and zero clients. In addition, Dell’s software solutions address key areas of campus IT: data center and cloud management, information management, mobile workspace management, security and data protection. To deploy and maintain campus IT infrastructure, Dell Services helps colleges and universities address common pain points such as the migration of Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8 with its Windows Migration Services.

Dell is working with the following higher education institutions to support their learning goals and educate their students for the future:
