Unifying the Digital Campus: Free Half-day Seminars Announced for Higher Ed Technology Execs
WHAT: Campus Pipeline, Inc. is sponsoring a series of 10 free, half-day seminars
that will explore how existing campus systems can be combined with new technologies
and applications to further digital campus initiatives. Attendees will participate
in interactive workshop-style presentations and network with their peers over
WHY: Education industry market research and consulting firm Eduventures estimates
that the e-education market will grow from $4.5 billion in 2001 to $11 billion
in 2005. With budgets growing slower than enrollments, institutions are looking
to technology to help them do more with less. Institutions believe unified digital
campuses will help them provide more services to more students in a much more
cost-effective way than by simply adding more staff. Institutions are also turning
to technology to help them compete for students — and, increasingly, faculty,
staff and alumni — who have come of age in a wired world and expect to use
the Internet as a primary interface to the world of higher education.
WHO: Presidents, provosts, CIOs, and other executives involved in technology
decisions from all sizes and types of higher education institutions will find
this seminar useful. Featured topics and scheduled speakers vary by location,
but will include:
- Industry luminaries, such as Kenneth Green, founder/director of The Campus
Computing Project, discussing perspectives on higher ed technology issues,
- IT executives from institutions including Pepperdine University and Drexel
University sharing their experiences in creating unified digital campuses,
- Company representatives from Sun Microsystems and Documentum presenting
new information on open network environments and the power of content management.
