Higher Education's Top-Ten Strategic Technologies for 2014
Grajek, Susan
The annual "EDUCAUSE" top-ten IT issues in higher education receives a great deal of interest and attention. IT and higher education leaders use it to calibrate their IT-related activities and inform their strategic planning. This year "EDUCAUSE" is introducing a complementary list: the top-ten strategic technologies in higher education. Together, the two lists can provide more complete and nuanced guidance on institutional IT priorities. The top-ten strategic technologies were selected from the analysis of a vetted set of 78 technologies presented to "EDUCAUSE" members in a survey in fall 2013, as described in the Methodology section of this report (appended). This report does not aim to describe or justify the importance of these technologies--a number of excellent existing resources already do that. The value of the "EDUCAUSE" list is that it is based on data about members' actual plans and thus sheds light not on what people are talking about but on what institutions are doing.
