Unifying the Digital Campus: Free Half-day Seminars Announced for Higher Ed Technology Execs

February 28, 2002

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.
