Learning in the digital age

Enabling better outcomes for students, schools and universities, as well as society.

Putting the student first: education in the digital world


Every educational institution and authority needs to think hard about digital innovation. With technology developments, such as virtual reality already making an impact in the classroom, we cannot imagine what the digital world will offer students even five years from now.

To make the very best of this digital future, we need to do more than be prepared in terms of infrastructure, application development, new communication models, and so on.

We also need to know how to manage costs, so that the benefits of digital innovation in education are available to all.

Security and governance are high on the agenda too. We must ensure that our students’ safety and wellbeing are paramount in the digital world.

With deep experience of technology in education, Atos is well-positioned to help you shape the future of learning, putting the student first in the new digital landscape.

“81% of higher education students used smartphones and tablets for studying in 2014.”

Customer transformation challenges

Whether working with an individual university or at ministerial level, Atos focuses on the same four critical areas that underpin all effective digital transformation.

Customer experience

In education, the student is the customer. How can new digital opportunity help students, teachers, support staff and examiners work together, preparing the next generation for the world in which we live?

Operational excellence

Operational excellence and digital innovation are inseparable in education. Managing intake, tracking educational progress and maximising the use of key resources; all are dependent on effective digital practice.

Business reinvention

Digital innovation is a priority in education. It’s not just about creating the best learning experience. It’s also key to managing budgets, attracting students and connecting educational institutions around the world.

Trust and compliance

A safe student is a happy student. Universities need to get the balance right between active monitoring and open communication, as well as uncompromising respect for personal data privacy.
