Session #1 - Distributing Data to Drive Decisions - Blackboard Introduction
Today, we operate in an environment where there are competing pressures to improve student achievement, reduce spending and improve service delivery to students. To meet today's challenges, university leaders must be able to assess the value and efficacy of investments – which means data gathering and analytics distribution to ensure better investment alignment against institutional objectives.

Session #2 - Bring Your Own Device and the Social-Mobile Connected Student - Blackboard Introduction
We grew up with websites, they are growing up with apps. With technology changing at a rapid pace and student expectations climbing, the necessity to meet student needs with solutions that scale at your institution becomes ever more challenging. Students today are more connected and have access to more information than ever before. YouTube acquires 48 hours of new video every minute and 204 million email messages are sent every minute. Join us for a lively discussion about social and connected learners and hear how your peers are addressing the evolving student experience.
