After 7 years, iCampus has come to a successful close. It was celebrated with a 2-day symposium, Learning without Barriers / Technology without Borders, in early December 2006, bringing together luminaries from government, academia, and industry. The MIT-Microsoft alliance has successfully done what it started out to do: it fostered barrier-less collaborations and exciting new technological developments aimed at improving education in higher learning institutions, first at home here at MIT, then globally, across borders, through its Outreach Initiative.
Thanks to all the faculty and student PI’s and your teams for working with the MIT/Microsoft Alliance in your iCampus research projects. Thanks to your efforts, the iCampus Alliance has proven to be a successful engagement both for MIT and for Microsoft.
