EDUCAUSE 2022: Tech Tools Evolve to Meet Students’ Needs
The latest technology tools were on display at EDUCAUSE 2022 in Denver, all designed to help students succeed in today's hybrid learning environments. We took a closer look at three offerings from Cisco, Zoom and Lenovo that run the gamut from virtual reality to collaboration to space-saving hardware.

- Cisco's virtual reality campus allows students to experience hybrid learning in a new way and gives professors a new tool to interact with students inside a virtual classroom.
- Zoom has matured from a platform that offered only meetings to one that now incorporates chat, phone, whiteboards and more, all with an eye on improving collaboration between students and faculty in different locations.
- Lenovo's small but powerful workstations give students and faculty, especially those doing research, the ability to pack loads of computing power into tight spaces.
