Highly sophisticated multimedia tools, virtual reality apps, 3D technology, design labs, and maker spaces are some of the requirements that will be deemed necessary for smart campus.

• More Network Security

Students are finding new ways to connect to the world through digital technology. They share their voice, pictures, videos, and opinions with people far and wide. This makes them susceptible to cyber threats as well as temptations. With cybercriminals getting intelligent by the day, there is a high chance any of these can be tampered with to malign the student's character. It is the school's growing responsibility to guard its network and all the devices registered under the school and prevent cyber threats.

• Digital Library

As the lessons are becoming virtual, libraries are also going digital to support the students' educational journey. Digital libraries will also assist in preserving precious books for many generations to come. As the future generations will leverage the internet for most of the tasks, the chances are that the traditional concept of reading books will remain longer in their habits if the books are available in the digital format.
