September 22, 2002

Campus Pipeline, Inc. partner institutions take the stage at the Educause 2002 conference, Oct. 1-4, to share software selection and implementation strategies and highlight results from their digital campus implementations.

· Tuesday, Oct. 1, 8:30 a.m. – noon, B312. Digital Campus Blueprint: the Framework for Improving Service and Faculty Use of Technology while Reducing Costs.- (This event requires a separate conference registration.)

Join CIOs and Information System Managers from Appalachian State University and Pepperdine University, Plymouth State College and North Shore Community College for this pre-conference panel that will delve into how digital campus technologies have proven to consistently improve service, increase faculty adoption of technology and reduce implementation and staffing costs.

Drexel University’s Director of Core Infrastructure, Ken Blackney, will share how Drexel is implementing content management technology to streamline the creation and management of campus-affiliated Web content while delivering the right information to the right people at the right time.
