Company Drives Cloud Adoption in Hundreds of Primary, Secondary and Higher Education Institutions
LOS ALTOS, CA – Aug 8, 2013 – /BackupReview.info/ — Box today unveiled a new ecosystem for collaboration in education, with industry partners across the web, mobile and channel. The company also announced that more than 100 universities and hundreds of K-12 institutions use Box to facilitate better sharing and to create more modern classrooms.
In the past year, Box’s sales in the education industry more than doubled. Universities worldwide including Georgetown, University of Maryland, University of Mississippi, Stanford, Temple University and Tufts have moved millions of students, faculty and administrators to Box. The company has also seen impressive traction among K-12 institutions, like Atlas Preparatory School, Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School, KIPP D.C., St. David’s School, The Whitby School Inc. and West Lafayette Community School Corporation, who are adopting Box to create cutting-edge classroom experiences, often times in conjunction with tablet use.
“Future success for students and educators will be dependent on how well we integrate technology into our modern learning environments,” said Whitney Bouck, senior vice president and general manager of enterprise at Box. “Box helps schools to teach, conduct research, and run their operations more creatively and effectively, while also giving students new ways to connect and learn. With our growing network of education partners, we are enabling students and teachers to take ownership of education.”
