Internet2 Seeks to Knock Down Technology Barriers

By Tanya Roscorla, Center for Digital Ed

A world without network, storage and computer barriers could become reality if research and education network Internet2 has its way. The organization has set a high goal of knocking down these barriers in higher education. As the fields of digital content, video and cloud storage continue to advance, they provide opportunities to recreate an educational experience that has no limits. “We don’t want barriers to be the network, we don’t want barriers to be the storage, we don’t want barriers to be the computer,” said Shelton Waggener, senior vice president of Internet2. “If we can share and access the total capacity of higher education, we can live in a barrierless world.”
