Handheld and Mobile Computing CG is now Mobile Technologies

As the importance of mobile technologies has evolved since the inception of this constituent group and as the importance of mobile technologies continues to transform higher education the name of the CG has also transformed.

A few items regarding the Mobile Technologies CG:

Join the conversation: Please share this CG listserv with anyone in your organization who has responsibility for a mobile initiative or even has a passing interest in anything mobile.

Cross posting is welcome: While there are a number of CGs with specific interests, such as security, please share to this listserv when relevant to mobile. One item that is consistently mentioned during Educause events is a desire to have a central ‘clearinghouse’ for the wide-ranging number of mobile topics. The Mobile Technologies CG list can serve that purpose.

Annual Conference: Don’t forget to add the Mobile Technologies Constituent Group meeting to your schedule for the annual conference. Bring questions, hot-topics and ideas to share. This group deals with varied interests and is an opportunity to share lessons-learned from other campuses.

BYOD Un-Conference: At this year’s Annual Educause Conference an un-conference is being scheduled addressing the topic of BYOD. Add this session to your schedule.
