The Forever Changing Role of IT in Online Education - Sponsored by Exinda

Wednesday, February 17 | 2:00PM–3:15PM | Capitol Ballroom A-D
Session Type: Professional Development
Who decides which CMS to purchase? Who decides how to support online delivery? Who decides (and enforces) quality standards? Are the standards only academic? These questions and many others can bring strong opinions to the higher education table. Is the technology used in education a business decision, a technology decision, or an academic decision? Before you answer that question, answer these first: Who pays for it? Who supports it? Who uses it? If you think you know the answers to all of these questions, listen up: There are no right answers. So, then, how do we all move forward in this area of online education and technology services when resources are limited, budgets are being cut, and we're still trying to figure out how this whole online education world works? Hopefully, this session will at least help you answer that question.
