The Power of Collaboration
Working together to improve the learning experience with technology.
Together, the Unizin Consortium is finding solutions for the biggest issues facing higher education institutions today: affordability, access, and learner success. We know the current state of digital education is changing fast, and we're making sure that we're prepared for next-generation learners. We believe if you want to go far, go together.

The digital teaching and learning ecosystem runs on data. Collecting, storing and accessing data from a variety of sources in the learning environment is difficult but critical. Unizin's solutions for data management solve logistical challenges by providing real-time student performance information and anonymized data from across the Consortium. Standardized by the Unizin Common Data Model and organized in the Unizin Data Platform, university data remains wholly owned by the university. The campus decides what data goes into the Unizin Data Platform, where the data is completely de-identified to be used for consortial research purposes. It's your data, your way, with improved standardization and security.

A common data model and architecture can accelerate management of this data for all of higher education, while allowing universities… Read More
Keynote address by Unizin CEO Amin Qazi at the University of Iowa Tech Forum 2017. New forms of collaboration are in increasing demand for successful paths forward. Internal constraints, both within an organization and within an individual, occur when new collaboration is in conflict with existing regulations, processes, and habits, leading to missed opportunities for innovation.
