Most of the time, technology in the classroom is a "we" or "they" issue: On one side are the people who deploy and operate the systems, on the other, the academics and staffers who use them. But, typically, on both sides, everyone is so busy trying to prepare for the next class or the next term that there's little opportunity to ask what new technologies are really adding to students' education. It's an important question, and yet one that very few people on campus are in a good position either to ask or to answer. The sole exception may be the one executive who is paid to make sure students are learning all that they should be: the chief academic officer (CAO). But evaluating the degree of success of an electronic learning program, and learning how to replicate that success, requires a special kind of CAO--someone who understands curriculum requirements and, at the same time, truly understands the technology and its potential. In this article, five tech-visionary chief academic officers reveal how they unleash their campuses' learning potential through the intelligent use of technology.
