As CTOs look for new products, tools, apps and equip- ment to meet that demand, here are six trends to watch in 2013, according to higher-ed IT leaders interviewed by Campus Technology. 1. Big data beyond the basics. Big data will help institutions build model student profiles that can be used to target for admission those students most likely to be successful. 2. Faster course corrections. Universi- ties will use big data to assess course feedback and quickly make curricula changes. 3. Pressure from BYOD. As students bring an ever increasing number and variety of wireless devices to campus, Wi-Fi networks, tools and support will quickly evolve to meet increased demand. 4. Platform-independent comput- ing gains ground. IT departments will soon support all devices and platforms. Look for virtual desktop environments that will allow students to run any software, regardless of location or device. 5. Mobile apps are a go. Moving away from broadcast publishing, more schools will develop mobile apps that let users access only the information they need. 6. Growth of educational social media. Social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ will be integrated into the curriculum for the real-time, real- world collaboration they enable. --- GCN Sta GCN FEBRUARY 2013 • GCN.COM 3 24 FEBRUARY 2013
