Twenty years into the transformation initiated by the World Wide Web, this author notes that institutes of higher education have grown accustomed to a head-spinning pace of technological and social change. Innovations that would have amazed us ten years ago are now merely passing news, as transient as a tweet. Music, video, and journalism have…

Hill, Phil – EDUCAUSE Review, 2012
Although there has been a long history of distance education, the creation of online education occurred just over a decade and a half ago--a relatively short time in academic terms. Early course delivery via the web had started by 1994, soon followed by a more structured approach using the new category of course management systems. Since that…

Hanson, Terry – EDUCAUSE Review, 2011
The purpose of an information strategy is to highlight the extent to which a modern, complex organization depends on information, in all of its guises, and to consider how this strategic asset should be managed. This dependency has always been present and nowhere more so than in universities, whose very purpose is built around information and its…

Davis, Jim; Rocchio, Rosemary A. – EDUCAUSE Review, 2011
Mobile use of the Internet is on target to surpass fixed use by 2014. Three-fourths of all college/university students have purchased or intend to purchase an Internet-enabled handheld device within the next year. The smartphone market is changing almost monthly.

Mahon, Ed; McPherson, Michael R.; Vaughan, Joseph; Rowe, Theresa; Pickett, Michael P.; Bielec, John A. – EDUCAUSE Review, 2011
IT leaders today must not only provide but also decide: which tools and services should they continue to supply, which are better delivered by others, and perhaps most critically, which methods from among the bewildering array of alternative sourcing strategies will best serve their faculty, staff, and students. In 2009, the EDUCAUSE Center for…

Sanger, Larry – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
In this article, the author analyzes three common strands of current thought about education and the Internet. First is the idea that the instant availability of information online makes the memorization of facts unnecessary or less necessary. Second is the celebration of the virtues of collaborative learning as superior to outmoded individual…

Rossini, Carolina – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
The change brought about in the networked information environment is deep and structural, in a way that has the potential to empower cultures left out of the Industrial Revolution.

Boyd, Danah – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
The future of Web 2.0 is about content streams or streams of information. The metaphor implied by "streams" is powerful. The idea is that individuals are living inside the stream: adding to it, consuming it, redirecting it. The goal today is to be attentively aligned--"in flow"--with these information streams, to be aware of information as it…

Rowland, Cyndi; Mariger, Heather; Siegel, Peter M.; Whiting, Jonathan – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
A revolution is about to transform higher education. To participate in this revolution, those in higher education need to explore a critical concept: "universal design."

Tapscott, Don; Williams, Anthony D. – EDUCAUSE Review, 2010
Universities are losing their grip on higher learning as the Internet is, inexorably, becoming the dominant infrastructure for knowledge--both as a container and as a global platform for knowledge exchange between people--and as a new generation of students requires a very different model of higher education. The transformation of the university…

Some of the most significant changes in information technology are those that have given the individual user greater power to choose.
