Information Technology can be a game changer in higher education. We have all seen the new experiences IT can create but the real strength is in the ability to create new models that will serve new groups of students, serve larger numbers of students and produce improved learning outcomes. “IT serves as a delivery channel for information of all kinds, increasing convenience, access, and flexibility” (p. 38). Technology can improve the College experience and this is not just the convenience of courses and curriculum. Technology can provide streamlined, user-friendly experiences where the actual value of the education is in the interactions between students, faculty and the community. “The real value of a course may lie in the critical thinking a faculty member encourages in a student, or the integration of content with real-world experience, and the motivation to continue learning and solve important problems (p.39).
