Summary of uses of the Ed Comms plaform

Academic Staff

The pilot research (2010-2012) involved nearly a thousand academics and their partners from over 100 institutions in more than 20 countries. Examples of the benefits they identified from using EdComms are shown below:

While some staff find it easy to adopt these new ways of working, others need support and training to make full use of the opportunities.

Non Academic Staff

A large percentage of staff in educational organisations have similar roles to staff in local authorities – human resources, procurement, estates management, finance and similar benefits to those experienced in local authorities can be expected for those staff in the education sector. Communities can be built which join these groups of people together across organisations to encourage ‘SMART’ working practices.
