Proposed Sessions

  • Publishing changes. Going from paper textbooks to digital copy.
  • Virtual Worlds in higher ed
  • Communicating with students. How can faculty/admin reach students? Social media, SMS, web.
  • Distance learning: What works? What doesn't? Creating communities remotely.
  • Online collaboration tools. Discuss platforms and approaches to drawing in users.
  • What does a classroom look like in the year 2020?
  • Is .edu IT dead? Students and faculty come to school with their own phones, email, and cloud web services. What is left to provide them?
  • MapReduce clusters using open-source Hadoop on Elastic MapReduce.
  • Making use of Amazon Web Services (EC2, SimpleDB, S3, CloudFront, SQS).
  • Increasing website/application performance with memcached.
  • Making use of numerous online service APIs (Google, Facebook, NYTimes, Calais).
  • How hard is it to setup something like MIT's OpenCourseWare?
  • Bang for the buck: services, software and strategies with proven ROI for alumni relations/advancement
  • Data Integration - bridging the divide between the greybeards and SAAS via web services, middleware and lots of meetings
  • Enterprise Service Buses: has their time come?
  • Adobe Cocomo - developing real-time social apps for education and alumni engagement
  • CRM : worth implementing?
  • Working across silos (political and data)
  • Data mining for donors
  • Upending the model - rallying around affinity instead of locale (another alumni relations topic)
  • Staying on top of new technologies to stay one step ahead of students
  • Unlimited dreams, limited budgets: How to predict which services to offer
  • Unlimited dreams, limited time: How to pick which (program, new technique, skill) to learn next
  • Excellent Customer Service (or how to speak to them in English)
  • Assessing impact: how to we measure the impact of technology deployed in the classroom?  How do we prove what's successful?
  • Designing and deploying learning games
  • Millennials/digital natives:  who are they and what do they want from the edu IT department?  Maybe we should invite some of them and ask!
  • Virtual presence in higher ed
