The University of Saskatchewan and IBM Canada Ltd. announced in March that they have teamed up in hopes of leveraging the school’s wireless network and offering its students more e-learning opportunities.

Although there are not yet any concrete details about the agreement, it will see the university and IBM partnering over the next five years. This will enable them to plan and implement solutions for students who are being encouraged to access the campus’ hotspots and new campus portal through wireless devices they bring to the university with them, as opposed to the school supplying the technology.

Rick Bunt, associate vice-president for information and communications technology at the university, said he wants with their own wireless devices to use them to support their learning.
