187: The Partially Connected Experience - with Chris Bunio, Former Sr. Director Higher Education, Microsoft

Welcome back to America's leading higher education podcast! In this fantastic episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by Element451, we talk with Chris Bunio, Former Sr. Director Higher Education, Microsoft. Chris talks to us about the rapid growth of MS Teams during Covid - by thousands as a percentage.  Microsoft has been intentional to simplify life for faculty and students - they are looking at student engagement and student success as the priority, including how to understand trends within the data.  Chris discusses how MS looks to support all computing devices as ways the student can access learning and technology.  They are even tapping into "air band", which is the bandwidth not used by television stations that can create network access for more people in select areas. It's been about the "partially connected" experience, and Microsoft has been recreating the physical learning environment.

Chris is an experienced Senior Director with a demonstrated history of working in the computer software industry. He is skilled in Enterprise Software, Enterprise Architecture, Agile Methodologies, Marketing Strategy, and Microsoft Azure. Chris is a strong entrepreneurship professional with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) focused in Physics from the University of Manitoba.
