In the past few years, one cloud vendor after another has walked back its offerings of unlimited storage. The pandemic has fundamentally changed how we meet and teach. Students overwhelmingly point to lecture capture as one of the positives of remote learning. Similarly, recording meetings and design sessions has become a regular tool of staff, as well. These advances along with shifts in cloud storage trends will require far more active management by institutions. In this panel discussion, we will examine the context of this change, review the status of ongoing community work with cloud vendors, and look at strategies several institutions are implementing. We will discuss policy responses, technical approaches, and migration strategies. Participants in the session will hear perspectives from CIOs and instructional technology and community leaders on this timely topic. Finally, participants will learn about community activities around this issue and how to get involved to help their institutions and the broader higher education community.
