The Mobile Campus - Device and Application Management for the Present and Future

Mobile Devices are invading our campuses like kids to an ice cream truck. There is nothing we can do about it other than join in and see how we can best develop ways to utilize them. How can we take advantage of applications used on the devices as well as design ways to improve the dissemination of information on the backend? How can we improve the IT support structure in order to manage and standardize? This facilitated discussion will combine the perspectives and strategies of three institutions, small college (Oberlin College), medium size research institution (Lehigh University) and large state institution (Virginia Commonwealth University) on how to manage application development and deployment as well as the support for mobile devices.
