09.00 AM – 11.15 AMAI Classroom – Cloud in Campus by Microsoft

Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. And higher Education is a critical partner in achieving that mission. Together, we share a noble purpose to help students develop the skills necessary for success in the next stage of their lifelong learning journey.

The questions around Pathways, Experiences, Signals, and Culture must be dominated by a Student-Shifted mindset. This mindset challenges entrenched norms, especially within traditional institutions operating under a Faculty First mindset. The Digital Transformation of Higher Education is centered around a shift toward more student-centered models. To bring the Digital Transformation, Microsoft is working closely with Higher Education institutions and EdTech Innovators to provide intelligent services that connect each learner with the optimal learning resources and developmental experiences to guide their lifelong learning journey and build skills in pursuit of their individual ambitions.
