Teaching and Learning

Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine
With digital networks and social media, stories today are open-ended, branching, hyperlinked, cross-media, participatory, exploratory, and unpredictable. Web 2.0 storytelling picks up these new types of stories and runs with them, accelerating the pace of creation and participation while revealing new directions for narratives to flow.

Managing the Enterprise

Yochai Benkler
The networked information economy and society present a new social, technical, and economic environment within which the university functions. To understand the new challenges and opportunities this environment presents, we need a usable characterization of the core new characteristics of both the environment and the university as a system and how those characteristics interact to define today's challenges.
Reprinted from Richard N. Katz, ed., The Tower and the Cloud (Boulder, Colo.: EDUCAUSE, 2008).

E-Research and E-Scholarship

Clifford Lynch
How does the campus cyberinfrastructure challenge differ from the national cyberinfrastructure challenge, recognizing that investments in these areas should be not just complementary but mutually reinforcing?
National Science Foundation (NSF) Task Force on Cyberlearning
This excerpt from the NSF task force report highlights the new learning and educational approaches offered by cyberlearning and the possibility of redistributing learning experiences over time and space, beyond the classroom and throughout a lifetime.

Evolving Role of IT and Leadership

Beth Forrest Warner and the 2008 EDUCAUSE Evolving Technologies Committee
Focusing on “glimpses of the future,” the 2008 EDUCAUSE Evolving Technologies Committee looked at five IT technologies and trends of importance to higher education: green enterprise computing; location-aware computing; virtual worlds; business process management; and regulatory compliance.
