  • Digital resources
  • Learning space design and virtual classrooms
  • Choosing the right technologies

It’s our aim for the UK to be the most digitally advanced education and research nation in the world. We support colleges and universities to deliver first-class education enhanced by the kinds of technology emerging from the fourth industrial revolution. We call this Education 4.0.
