AWS Architecture Monthly Magazine: Education

Young man sitting on a stack of books with his laptopOne of the missions of the education industry is to educate the next generation of the industry-ready workforce. Whether K-12, higher education, or continuing education, enabling teachers and professors to effectively deliver curriculum and improve student performance is a goal of Education Technology (EdTech) and learning companies. Two trends for AWS use cases in education are: 1) accessible remote learning; and 2) remote collaboration. For brevity, there are other innovation trend areas in education that we didn’t focus on in our “Ask an Expert” interview despite their importance. Use cases around learning accessibility, student performance, and campus experience have taken advantage of Amazon Alexa, Amazon Lex, and a variety of AWS technology areas including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, data lakes, analytics, and mobile development. To dive deep into a wider range of education use cases, we invite everyone to look at our AWS Education blog.
