TAIPEI -- Wistron Corp., the world's third-largest laptop contract maker, signed agreements Monday with National Central University (NCU) and the state-funded Institute for Information Industry (III) to build educational cloud services.
Wistron and NCU will jointly develop a “Course Map” system to help undergraduates organize their learning schedules more efficiently, as well as an “e-Portfolio” system that allows students to save and review their study records on cloud servers.
The Taiwanese manufacturer has also been working with the III to digitalize many of the institute's vocational training courses, which will be available online in early 2014 so that college students can increase their work skills before graduating.
