Plenary Talk P6: Going Online - Do Universities Really Understand the Internet?

Going Online - Do Universities Really Understand the Internet?
Session Tag:
Tuesday 19th June 2012 from 14:00-14:45
Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, Robert Gordon University.

Much of the innovation in ICT over recent decades has come out of universities. However, while universities understand the technology, and are leaders in knowledge development, they often seem to be curiously bad at using technology for education or even for PR. Why is this so, and what can be done about it?

This plenary talk was mentioned in a tweet posted on 18 April 2012:
The #IWMW12 event will feature a plenary talk by a VC who will ask: "Do Universities Really Understand the Internet?"
