The education industry faces immense technology challenges. They must simultaneously serve the needs of students, parents, teachers, staff and administrators, all with limited resources. In addition, strict adherence to industry and government compliance standards must be followed. To meet these varied requirements, technology has evolved from something nice to have to a must have.

Hybrid learning in education is here to stay and has become a powerful tool, from elementary schools to public and private universities. But regardless of location, teachers still need to deliver uninterrupted learning while increasing student engagement and improving the quality of learning both in-person and virtually. These hurtles must be met while facing decreased revenue and enrollment challenges.
