While trustees' ability to support their institutions in the most effective manner will always depend partly on their ability to interact and deliberate face-to-face, recent adoption of technology to facilitate board activities has enabled presidents and their boards to work smarter, save money, make better decisions, build healthier institutions, and better serve their students and communities. This article discusses some of the emerging issues in board use of technology and describes the ways in which several boards have embraced new channels of communication.
