Abstract

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded in the past year, it necessitated a range of unprecedented social isolation and safety measures, and barely any aspect of daily life was left unaffected. One area which has certainly seen considerable changes as a result of COVID-19 is the education sector. When schools and universities around the world were forced to close their doors to prevent its spread, alternative methods and technologies had to be adopted almost overnight. Online learning became an urgent necessity, rather than an option. Many organizations moved to public cloud solutions, but the privacy and compliance problems with these quickly became apparent and many regretted the hasty decisions made.

Luckily, there are solutions. Nextcloud offers a modern, easy to use content collaboration platform accessible through mobile, desktop, and web interfaces. Students, teachers, and researchers can collaborate in real time on documents, chat and engage in video calls, access their email or plan meetings in calendars. As a pure software vendor, Nextcloud does not force customers to host in its data centers but works with a variety of leading partners to provide SaaS or on-premises solutions. Join our Expert talk session that focuses on the need and necessity of collaboration platforms in the Education sector.
