Educause research indicates over 75% of institutions are currently pursuing Digital Transformation (DX) initiatives on their campus, with this number recently skyrocketing due to the immediate shift to remote learning forced by COVID-19.

While Digital Transformation may come in many forms, a core tenant of success is digital literacy and technology adoption. Institutions must prepare long-term strategies for both deploying innovative digital tools and motivating staff, faculty and students to learn, adopt and champion technology. 

Research-proven techniques like Gamification will be a game changer for successful DX initiatives by recognizing, engaging and challenging team members to adopt tools.
