Introducing Internet2 NET+ GEN2—Catch the Webinars
Since 2012, the peer-driven Internet2 NET+ initiative has been focused on identification, development, and stewardship of secure, reliable, and cost-effective cloud solutions for higher education. Last year, the program completed a full community review, which provided outstanding guidance on how to tune the initiative to meet the fast growing and evolving landscape of cloud offerings. Hosted by members of the NET+ Program Advisory Group, a webinar series recently began—providing an opportunity to evaluate the results of last year’s program review and financials, and to introduce initial changes (referred to as "GEN2") that will provide new online benefits to member campuses. Through these changes, and more input and participation from members, even greater benefit can be delivered to institutions. View the recorded webinar and make plans to join the next session.
