Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced many schools, daycare, libraries, museums, etc. to rapidly shift the focus on innovation towards supporting remote coursework that would enable students to continue learning despite lockdowns, quarantines, and rapidly evolving state and federal guidelines. Once just a tiny fraction of a college’s total course offerings, online and hybrid learning modes became commonplace overnight.
This required rapidly deploying new technologies, scaling existing online learning infrastructure to meet the sudden spike in demand, and training teachers and students to teach and learn in a new way.
Now, as colleges, universities, and schools prepare for a return to normal, innovation continues to be a key priority. In the wake of the pandemic, the next wave of campus innovation will focus on improving educational health, and safety. Demonstrating your institution's innovation and commitment to health and safety will help students, teachers, and staff feel safer coming on campus every day. It will also give parents confidence in sending their children to school, encourage alumni to return to on-campus donation events and provide support for these initiatives, attract prospective students to visit, and later bring their tuition dollars.
Here, robotics will emerge as a key player, no longer confined to engineering labs and science fiction. There are different ways how whiz robot help campuses differentiate themselves, meet expectations for health and safety, rebuild confidence in on-campus experiences, and consistently enhance sustainability.
