This presentation focuses on the emerging technologies loosely coupled under the Web 2.0 umbrella and challenges the audience to “think about how they think about” the web.
It’s a new dawn. The next generation of the Web is approaching. A Web that is accessed more and more by mobile devices – anytime, anywhere. Where it is just as easy to create content as it is to consume it. A Web connected through syndication rather than links, and where more and more, the user is in control. This presentation will focus on the future direction of the Web and the implications for higher education Web professionals. Topics will include the mobile Web, converging technologies, the read/write Web, rich media, Web 2.0, and everywhere. The goal is to have the audience take a step back and think long term about the social and cultural changes, and the new opportunities for communicating and providing services to our constituents.
