"E-Content: Opportunity and Risk"

Shelton Waggener has published "E-Content: Opportunity and Risk" in the latest issue of EDUCAUSE Review.

Here's an excerpt:

During the last eighteen months, first as the Associate Vice Chancellor and Chief Information Officer at the University of California-Berkeley and more recently as Senior Vice President at Internet2, I have been engaged in conversations with peers from around the country to determine the risks, challenges, opportunities, and best practices associated with a full e-content environment. Simply put, almost every institution is scrambling to develop and implement an e-content strategy. Even those schools that started early and thought they had a strong plan and a clear path forward are now revisiting their plans based on the rapid pace of change. The following guide has been developed as a quick reference "do and don't" checklist, providing a few observations from these discussions. Some of the recommendations are short-term strategies; others are better for a long-term approach. All can provide guidance during this time of momentous change.
