Campus Technology recently released an interview with Tim Flood urging institutions to move more quickly with mobile. Flood is well known in the Higher Ed sphere as an advocate for mobile technology, and worked on the team at Stanford to launch the first mobile app for a college or university, iStanford.
“As a student, why would I want to attend a university that doesn't seem interested in mobile? What kind of opportunities will I get there? How will attending this place prepare me for the world I live in? Higher education is an increasingly competitive environment. The business model is being transformed at a very fundamental level….We're not just talking about implementing technology! We're ultimately talking about an institution's identity, its image, its perceived relevance--and perhaps its survival.”
His point: Stop hesitating, take risks, and stay relevant with mobile.
