About the Top 10 Research on Higher Education IT Issues and Strategic Technologies
The trends and forecasts revealed in the annual EDUCAUSE Top 10 research — including the IT issues and strategic technologies reports — are used by higher education leaders and decision makers to know what's important and where to focus in their IT planning and management. The lists of top IT issues and strategic technologies are developed by a panel of experts comprised of IT and non-IT leaders, CIOs, and faculty members and then voted on by the EDUCAUSE community in an annual survey.
The annual IT Issues article is published in EDUCAUSE Review. The EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research publishes the annual strategic technologies report and supporting materials. The research also guides EDUCAUSE enterprise IT, information security, professional development, and teaching and learning programs.
