At GBSB Global Business School, we have begun this process by installing a high-tech digital classroom experience. Students are empowered with the Microsoft Classroom on the first day of their classes. This platform connects students directly with their professors via the Microsoft Classroom App, where students can keep up-to-date with real time notifications regarding assignments and grades. The app also allows students to chat with professors outside the classroom, privately or in a group, about questions they may have on assignments and projects.
Students also have the advantage to make use of the Offline Office Package throughout the entire duration of their enrollment at GBSB Global Business School. They will also have 1 TB cloud storage available on OneDrive, a huge asset and convenience, motivating students to stay connected and organized. Eligible students that have a previous version of Microsoft Office (with the legal license number) will have perpetual access to the school’s Windows 10 education license.

The classroom of the future is within our reach. What does it look like?
1. Students Will Interact with Others Remotely
Yes, students at can proudly say they can already do this. This important step helps students reach beyond the classroom’s walls and engage with other students, teachers, authors, scientists, and experts in their field of study to enhance their learning.
2. Advances in Technology Will Still Rely on Talented Teachers
"Education needs to drive technology use, rather than the 'coolness' of technology trumping education", says Shannon May, co-founder of Bridge International Academic. The human factor will not be eliminated by technology, being "online" is not a cure-all for education. Intelligent, resourceful, and inspiring teachers will still be a vital component to the academic equation.
3. The Diploma Will Take on A Whole New Meaning
The standard 4-year diploma for an undergraduate degree will get a new look. With the changing face of education, this traditional degree outlining essentially how many years a student spent studying a particular discipline will contrast the new age of competency-based certifications, testing specific skills and bundling individual’s skills into professional groupings, which will become the new means of marketing to potential employers.
Being acknowledged by Microsoft as a leader in digital education is an honor and not something GBSB Global Business School takes lightly. GBSB strives to provide students with the most state-of-the-art learning experience from day one, supporting their growth and future career success by giving them an unparalleled digital teaching and learning environment that continuously adapts to the changing climate of innovation and technology.
