Multiple Devices and Platforms: Institutional Strategies

Thursday, May 17, 2012


This CNI’s Executive Roundtable on multiple devices and platforms discussed institutional strategies concerning BYOD. Faculty, staff, and students in our institutions continue to use laptops and desktop computers but now also bring a variety of mobile devices – notably smartphones and tablets – to campus.  They have increasing expectations for the seamless use of a variety of devices to access all types of content and services.  With the growing popularity of platform-specific apps and proprietary formats for some types of information resources, we may be moving away, at least temporarily, from the gains achieved by the focus on interoperability that marked the earlier years of the development of networked information. Teams from 11 higher education institutions described their experiences, concerns, strategies, and future plans on these issues.
