Mark Hopkins and the Digital Log


This article discusses how technology challenges facing higher education have less to do with new products (computers, software, networks) and more to do with people and by extension, institutional plans, policies and politics.

Kenneth C. Green

Kenneth C. Green is the founding director of The Campus Computing Project (www.campuscomputing.net), the largest continuing study of the role of information technology in American colleges and universities. The project is widely cited by both campus officials and corporate executives as the definitive source for information about information technology issues affecting American higher education. The project is also the model for affiliated research programs underway in several nations including Brazil and Canada.

Green is the author/co-author or editor of a dozen books and published research reports and more than 100 articles and commentaries that have appeared in academic journals and professional publications. An invited speaker at some two dozen academic conferences and professional meetings each year, Green's work has been cited by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, and by other print and broadcast media.

Green's signature DIGITAL TWEED blog is published by INSIDE HIGHER ED (www.insidehighered.com/blogs/digital_tweed). Green also serves as the senior research consultant to INSIDE HIGHER ED and has helped to develop INSIDE HIGHER ED's surveys of college presidents, financial officers, and admissions officers (http://www.insidehighered.com/news/survey).

In October 2002, Green was the initial recipient of the EDUCAUSE Award for Leadership in Public Policy and Practice. The award cites his work in creating The Campus Computing Project and recognizes his "prominence in the arena of national and international technology agendas, and the linking of higher education to those agendas."

A graduate of New College in Sarasota, Florida, Green completed his master's degree at the Ohio State University and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles.
