Three Universities Win AMX Innovation Awards for Transformative Uses of Technology: Winners Enabled Seamless Collaboration, Reduced Costs and Enhanced Teaching and Learning


Three higher ed institutions have been recognized for their innovative uses of technology by the judges of the 2012 AMX Innovation Awards.
