The 2015 EDUCAUSE MEGA POST

Hello, friends!

As part of my normal conference coverage, I publish a post of posts, which I call a “MEGA POST.”  It’s my attempt to capture all the different sessions I attended.  The 2015 EDUCAUSE annual conference in Indianapolis had so many great sessions, I often found it difficult to pick one over another.  The increased use of data to drive campus decision-making was a hot topic at the conference this year.

I do my best to capture the content of ever session, but I am human…any errata, misstatements or omissions are totally mine.  I hope you find some benefit from my conference experience.  Enjoy!
