With the holiday season over and new year’s resolutions in place, January is a great time to look back at how Higher Ed IT fared in 2017 and what is to come in 2018. Unfortunately, we know that “free time” is a rare commodity among university CIOs. Instead of searching through thousands of articles published last month, let us do the work for you with our list of the must-read Higher Ed IT articles from January 2018.
eCampus News started this new year off by looking forward at what we should expect in 2018. While the article itself is short and sweet, the annual report that comes attached is an extensive look at the educational trends and predictions for what will happen in the next 11 months. Learn more about what is soon to come in Higher Ed with eCampus News’ full article and report.

While some Higher Ed trends and topics for discussions come and go, the increasing population of “nontraditional” students won’t be going anywhere soon. Thankfully, universities are noticing and adjusting their strategies for appealing to returning, part-time, and online students.

At the risk of stretching the definition of the phrase “articles”, there’s no better way to keep up with the news while on-the-go than podcasts. Higher Ed Live offers news and discussion on all things Higher Ed through a combination of audio recordings and written components, most of which involve interviews with industry veterans and leaders. Take a look back at their top podcasts from last year with Higher Ed Live’s full article.
