Summary As higher education strives to maintain goals of quality, efficiency and effectiveness, information technology is already playing an integral role. There is a growing need to examine issues, trends, controversies, challenges and opportunities facing higher education leaders and administrators as they begin to assess the value of information technology. Cases on Information Technology in Higher Education is a collection of cases by researchers and practitioners that investigates examples of integrating IT in higher education, examining both successes and failures in college and university settings. This book explores the ways in which the application of IT in higher education is both similar and uniquely different from industry, bridging the gap between the two.
