Thanks, Casey, for contributing survey data. 

The deadline for the 2013 Campus Computing Survey is Friday, Oct 4th.  You'll note that the time you spend on the survey yields the results that Casey has shared with the community many times over the last year. 
 
There are very important surveys for our community; another is Educause Core Data.  The difference between Campus Computing and Core Data, as often described by Campus Computing as:

  • Launched in 1990, Campus Computing is the largest continuing study of the role of eLearning and IT in American higher ed.
  • Focus on planning and policy issues, with just a small part of the survey requesting quantative data; very little overlap with questions on the Core Data Survey.
  • Provides not only data, but information and insight about key IT issues.
  • Casey has usually been ahead of the curve in providing data on a number of emerging and critical issues: P2P policy, migration to Open Source and Cloud computing, transitions in the LMS market, and more.
  • The Campus Computing "Top Ten" is developed using a different methodology than the Educause "Top Ten."  The varying perspectives is very useful in developing your personal campus strategy.

Note that the 2013 Campus Computing Survey session is scheduled for Thursday morning at the Educause Conference, Oct. 17, 8:00 Ballroom D.

Comments

I will echo Theresa's comments. 

The value I get back from the survey vastly outweighs the minimal afford required to complete it.
