As demand for higher education continues to soar, has the rise of technology enabled teaching during the pandemic laid the foundations for universities to successfully extend their reach?

This week we speak with Ian Jacobs, the outgoing president and vice-chancellor of the University of New South Wales, Sydney, about what motivates institutions to scale their operations and how it can be done. 

We also talk to Jude Sheeran, principal, international education and research technology at Amazon Web Services about types of technology that can support the expansion of higher education's capacity. Special thanks to Amazon Web Services for sponsoring this episode.
