Getting Ready for Educause

Educause is next week. I’m looking forward to going to this conference, so I can learn about the latest tech learning directions at colleges and universities. One advantage to spending time demonstrating product in the Microsoft booth is that I get to talk with people involved in all aspects of higher ed — from university medical centers to research faculty looking for electronic lab notebooks to IT decision makers. I expect this year will be just as diverse.

As usual, I’m also interested in seeing what is in the exhibit hall. I’ve made a short list of booths that I want to stop at first. Then, when I get time I’ll want to walk the entire floor and see what interesting and new products companies are promoting.
