Jude talked to us about trends that are accelerating digital transformation in education, such as flexible learning, digital assessment, the need for rapid adjustment to industry needs, the growing challenges around mental health in education and how cloud technology can be key to accelerate innovation and international collaborations in research. He also shared with us the keys to the culture of innovation in Amazon.
