Imagine: A Better World, A Global Education Conference

The IMAGINE: A Better World, A Global Education Conference, hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), will bring together education leaders for a unique experience. Presidents, college administrators, superintendents, and business leaders will meet in Seattle to discuss the opportunities that face education, and how the AWS Cloud can be the missing piece to unlocking true innovation.

VA Cyber Range Director Dr. David Raymond will be participating in the panel, "Disruptive Models for Delivering Learning Using the Cloud". From creating virtual environments to simulate a cyber-attack, to generating new revenue streams with online courses, institutions are leveraging the AWS Cloud to deliver content and drive learning outcomes in new and creative ways. In this session, participants will be inspired by disruptive use of technology and come away with proven examples of how they can leverage cloud-enabled solutions that transform the way their institution delivers learning.
