IT trends revealed at EDUCAUSE
from Information Today, Inc.
At the opening session of the annual EDUCAUSE conference, held this year in Indianapolis, EDUCAUSE president and CEO John O’Brien announced that about 7,000 people from 43 countries were in attendance. The focus of conference presentations was on trends in IT that affect all aspects of higher education, which makes sense because EDUCAUSE is a nonprofit association for IT professionals in higher education. Its membership consists of institutions, corporations, and associations; there’s no category for individual membership. The organization’s membership currently stands at some 2,300 academic institutions and 300-plus corporations. This translates to at least 68,000 individuals participating in EDUCAUSE.
