Research Reveals Spending Priorities in Higher Ed

A recent survey, "Audio Visual and Unified Communication Technologies in Higher Education," commissioned by AVI-SPL and conducted by the Center for Digital Education (CDE), uncovers how higher education officials plan to invest in audiovisual and unified communications technologies.

Key findings from the survey of IT and facility procurement decision-makers include: 

  • Nearly half of respondents don’t feel current AV/UC technologies meet student and instructor needs
  • AV and UC technologies are needed most in classrooms, followed by online learning
  • AV/UC technology investments will be primarily funded through operating budgets
