You Can’t Build a Digital Campus Without a Solid Digital Foundation: Creating a Connected Student Experience While Deprecating a Complex Legacy SIS

Wednesday, October 26 | 1:00PM–1:45PM MT | Meeting Room 601/603
Session Type: Industry Led
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

Every Higher Education leader today wants to build a unified digital platform that can deliver students’ success and a great experience but are challenged by outdated technology such as 20-year-old student records systems and a museum of legacy software that don’t talk to each other. Join Nick Gilbert, CIDO and Osama Khan, PVC-A to share a vision for a student-centric approach: a strategy that has led to a seismic shift in student experience at the University of Surrey, along with UNSW Sydney’s Dr. David Kellermann and his project for an international open-source software consortium.
