Friday, February 24 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Pavilion East, Plaza Level

Students flock to online services like Amazon, Pandora, and Netflix that offer personalized recommendations in stark contrast to the "one size fits all" services in higher education. At this session we will present Sherpa, a recommendation engine for courses, information, and services that uses both human and machine intelligence.
