Socializing Higher Education through Content Management Systems (Academic Panel)

Social media and content management systems present a unique opportunity to transform higher education to meet the needs of the next generation student. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are seen as socially-connected content generators who interact and share knowledge frequently, in short bursts, and seamlessly multi-task among work, home, and school networks.
