Please feel free to forward this to your groups.Analytics is ranked as one of the Top-Ten IT Issues of 2012. While this may not be a novel topic to IT, there is still a lot to learn. Analytics can be used to address accountability, affordability, efficiency, competitiveness, and student successâ€”but how and where do we get started?Join the Conversation! The EDUCAUSE Analytics 3-Day Sprint will be held July 24â€“26 and is a free, online discussion about the many ways analytics is impacting higher education IT. I encourage you to join in on this conversation. Learn about the right questions to ask, and the right answers to the questions that may soon be asked of us. If you have not signed up for the free daily webinars, from 2-3:30 EDT each day, be sure to do soâ€”and plan to visit the sprint website linked above throughout the event to participate in additional online activities and discussions on analytics.
