EDUCAUSE

Hi Folks:

My very first EDUCAUSE conference is quite hectice. On Tuesday the pre-conference I attended was long & interesting but a little disappointing. Presenters talked about how they began a digital asset management system at UMich but didn't make good links to general lessons learned or explain clearly how the got support of differnet participants.

Today's keynote address started well & covered some interesting points about technology challenges & our changing student needs re learning (re environment & conent). It got long & repetitive but the presenter is definitely in the know & helping make change at the upper levels of Higher Ed.

The 3 sessions I've attended so far (on my way to 1 more) were very good (ARTstor, Institutional Repositories, online tutorial & eportfolios).

Maybe tomorrow I'll buzz in again.

Z et all thank for this blog!!

Thanks for the message Marlene. I'm interested in what you gather from the repositories and online tutorials. Sounds like some interesting topics.
