THE EVOLVING CHALLENGES OF INTERNET OF EVERYTHING: ENHANCING STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND EMPLOYABILITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION

I. Bandara, F. Ioras

Buckinghamshire New University (UNITED KINGDOM)
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is the essential prerequisite for the creation of virtual communities and ecosystems of institutions, communities and smart objects. IoE is built on the connections among people, processes, data and things.

IoE are explicitly linked to global higher education (HE) and betterment to economic development, new research and innovation. Significant numbers of learning activities are moving to individualized proliferation of ebooks, e-readers, etextbooks, elearning and e-everything where transition to "hybrid" classes that combine online learning components with less-frequent on-campus, in-person class learning becomes more and more the norm. Through mass adoption of IoE is expected to witness a shift in expert resources use in HE that allows more people to gain access to education, regardless of their learning background.

IoE adaptation in HE and the ubiquitous connectedness will transform the pedagogy towards one that empowers a new generation of digital citizens who understand the technologies that underpin IoE, but the impact of widespread adoption, and the right application of the information need yet to be understood.
To transform information into processes and products is necessary to gain from the sharing and use of knowledge. We analyse how an Internet of Everything that filter, select and distinguish relevant information to tailored student need enhances performance.

This article endeavours to discuss the evolving challenges of IoE adaptation in the HE including:
(1) access to right content and information and availability of materials on any device, at any time,
(2) customization of curriculum to enable high/active engagement, interaction and attendance,
(3) skills mismatch reduction to meet employers need as indicators of success for IoE adoption in HE.
