Abstract

The paper aims to present a new concept in IT&C (Information Technology and Communications, namely Internet-of-Things (IoT). Starting from a short introduction on the basics of this concept, a study is conducted to demonstrate the importance of introducing IoT in higher education. Also, there are identified several practical methods identified for integrating IoT features in academia, especially in the areas of teaching and learning enhancements. Even if important IT&C companies launched and implemented projects in this area, a model for “smart universities” is no well-defined. In our study, we demonstrate that the optimal technical solution for academia are IoT Platforms with real-time, limited-area service provision using Cloud Computing services.
