Campus Computing Podcast & Webcast Archive
Higher education came of age at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The January 11th HigherEdTECH summit drew a standing room-only crowd of campus officials, policy-makers, and technology innovators. Below are links to two of the plenary sessions and two podcasts.
Is 2012 the year that e-books and digital content take hold in academe? Or will the textbook continue to reign? Casey Green leads a lively, provocative discussion of the promise, potential, and market realities of moving from Dewey to digital in higher education.
From iconic high-tech pioneer to education visionary, Scott McNealy, co-founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems and now founder of Curriki.org and chairman of Wayin, continues to offer blunt assessments about the status quo and as well as original thinking about the potential of technology to shape the future. A passionate voice for improving the quality of education, McNealy shares his thoughts about doing business with higher ed, how the current wave of tech expansion differs from the dot.com experience, how leaders can stay current with new technologies, and injecting innovation into our current system.

Trust, Verify, and Communicate: Presidential Perspectives on the Campus Investment in Information Technology
Colleges and universities currently spend about six percent of their total budgets on IT resources and services—hardware, software, services, and personnel—to support teaching and instruction, research, administration and management, and campus services. Yet new data from the 2011 Presidential Perspectives Survey conducted by Inside Higher Ed and The Campus Computing Project suggest that many presidents are ambivalent, at best, when asked to assess the effectiveness of their institution’s investment in IT. Green’s presentation draws on the Presidential Perspectives Survey and also Inside Higher Ed's summer 2011 survey of college and university business officers to discuss the challenges that campus IT leaders confront in their efforts to explain the impact and benefits of the continuing institutional investment in IT.
This year (2011) marks the official beginning of the fourth decade of the “IT revolution" in higher education that began with the slow migration of IBM-PCs and Macintosh computers onto campus in the mid-1980s. Technologies have changed and improved dramatically over time, but what are the issues that consume the time and attention of today’s faculty, IT leaders, and senior campus administrators? Drawing on data from The Campus Computing Project and other sources, Green’s Campus Technology 2011 plenary presentation addresses the continuing challenges that higher ed's great aspirations for IT pose for faculty, administrators, and IT leaders.

Ready2Net: Anticipating The Unexpected: Campus Security, Emergency Response & Crisis Management (Apr 2008)
Plenary Session, 2008 EDUCAUSE Western Regional Conference. The attention of—and on—higher education has been focused on defensive measures to curb illegal file sharing. But the focus on higher education occurs in the context of a much larger national debate about the appropriate role of copyright and intellectual property in cyberspace. Simultaneously, myriad new business models and delivery options for online digital entertainment are being tested. What are institutions of higher education doing to curb illegal file sharing? What are the issues in the larger copyright debate? And what is the vision of the entertainment industry for offering digital entertainment online? A panel of distinguished experts - Greg DePriest (NBC Universal), Kenneth C. Green (The Campus Computing Project), and Fred von Lohmann (Electronic Frontier Foundation) - discuss these and other pertinent issues in the peer-to-peer file sharing debate.
