Campus Technology: In the coming year, IT organizations in colleges and universities expect to be grappling with "data-enabling" their institutions, funding, and setting up their units as institutional leaders and change agents. That's what IT leaders told Educause in its latest survey to determine the top 10 IT issues for higher education. During a well-attended session during the latest Educause Annual Conference, Susan Grajek, Educause vice president for communities and research, shared the results.
The trends are developed through a multi-phase process. A group of higher ed IT leaders works with Educause researchers to propose a list of issues that appear on their own radar. Then a popular vote is taken among the wider Educause membership to determine the 10 most compelling issues.
