Western Sydney University to provide 5,000 students with Surface 3's this year

Western Sydney University has announced that this year it will provide 5,000 students with Microsoft's Surface 3 tablet. The university is working with Microsoft and other partners to create opportunities for students to learn by using new technologies in ways that provide greater flexibility. We've seen airlines put the Surface 3 in the cockpit, and now we are seeing it adopted in even more places.

On Wednesday, students who received an early offer from the University received a Surface 3 device as part of the University's 'Connect and Collect Day' held at the Parramatta campus. Students receiving the Surface 3 device are studying a range of courses from across the School of Science and Health, Social Sciences and Psychology, and School of Nursing and Midwifery.

With technology becoming a bigger part of our everyday lives, it is great to see the university leveraging Microsoft's great products to push the limits of its students.
