eCampus News

In order to better harness the technological innovations ripe for higher ed’s use toward its own reinvention,Penn State’s EdTech Network is leveraging the University’s size and broad research strengths to be a driver for job creation, economic development and student career success—and they’re asking other colleges, universities, faculty and staff, students, and companies to join.
