Campus Tech Trends

Campus IT leaders must be ready for the impending impact of artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented realities and IoT on the classroom this year and how it will forever change the way instructors teach and students learn — All that while balancing budget challenges and the increased demand for additional technology resources.

  • Support online instruction and the growing use of academic video
  • Address accessibility and cloud security concerns
  • Deal with faculty’s fear of trying when it comes to digital learning

In this webinar, Campus Computing Project Founder Casey Green and Sonic Foundry VP of Marketing and Communications Tammy Jackson explore the challenges that confront campus CIOs and IT officers and what their priorities should be in 2018 to foster the most innovation and success in the classroom.
