7 Things You Should Know About

eliIf you are interested in learning about emerging technologies for teaching and learning, we recommend that you take a look at the the “7 Things You Should Know About” series from the Educause Learning Initiative (ELI).  These quick guides provide brief overviews of emerging technologies and practices in a consistent format organized around the following 7 questions:

  1. What is it?
  2. How does it work?
  3. Who’s doing it?
  4. Why is it significant?
  5. What are the downsides?
  6. Where is it going?
  7. What are the implications for higher education?

In September, ELI celebrated the 100th edition of the “7 Things You Should Know” series by publishing a special issue called “7 Ways to Use 7 Things.” Check out the links to this issue as well as several others from this series.

St. Olaf is a member of Educause, and IT staff attend their conferences, view their webinars, and use the resources on their website. To learn more about ELI, go to their website or follow them on Twitter @EDUCAUSELI.
