It’s Not Just Another Acronym: BYOD – Transforming the Campus

Who is driving technology decisions on college campuses and in the classroom? The classroom is being flipped in more ways than one. Students bringing one, two or even three mobile devices onto campus and into the classroom are defining by expectation how technology leadership redresses the campus. And it’s not just students. Faculty are bringing their own devices, particularly in light of reduced budget and limited access to new technologies. How will you accommodate the thirst for high-performance wi-fi? Everywhere! How will you ensure data security and network integrity? Anywhere! How will you manage the proliferation of personal use devices? All-The-Time!

Topics specific to BYOD (bring your own device) on the college campus and in the classroom will be addressed, as well as an exploration of current trends, developments on the horizon, and a case study from a community college campus. The webinar will be hosted by Stephen diFilipo, Vice President & Chief Information Officer, Cecil College. A follow-up discussion about what BYOD means to ICC will be hosted by members of the Illinois Central College Think Tank group.
