University of Michigan Empowers Distance Learning and Remote Collaboration With Campuswide Dropbox Education Deployment
“COVID-19 has created extraordinary learning challenges for university students across the country,” said
U-M selected Dropbox as its collaboration platform to support the diverse needs of its academic community, especially as student and faculty needs evolve due to COVID-19. This deployment connects users with Dropbox Education’s best-in-class capabilities, a powerful asset for teams working together on research papers, large data sets, and multimedia projects. Dropbox Education also integrates seamlessly with tools that U-M already uses, like Zoom and Canvas, to make collaboration even easier.
- Faculty can focus more deeply on research, and spend less time organizing assignments within Dropbox Education’s easy-to-use interface. During academic semesters and teaching periods, faculty can share updated materials, track deadlines, and highlight upcoming projects.
- Students can use Dropbox Paper to collaborate in real-time and advance group projects by assigning to-dos, setting due dates, and @mentioning classmates. Working groups can upload, download, view, and work on content whether in class, the residence halls, or at home.
- Staff and administrators can keep operations running smoothly with the Dropbox Admin Console, and secure data with enterprise-grade security features like multi-layered protection and encryption.
