Connected Summit garners kudos for ACU

Adrian Sannier of Pearson eCollege delivered the Tuesday keynote.
That more than 500 professionals from education and technology fields attended the 2011 Connected Summit at Abilene Christian University this week, in spite of shrinking – or soon to shrink – budgets and a tight economy, is a testament to the importance many ascribe to the innovative mobile-learning initiative for which ACU is recognized.
Attendees were generous with accolades for what they saw and learned about the subject matter, and ACU.
“I look at how a small university in Texas is using technology in a big way and it gets me excited. It is amazing to see the engagement between students and teachers. I’m really impressed. They’re the model for all of us to follow – small and big campuses,” Campbellsville (Ky.) University IT director Hermano Queiroz told Abilene Reporter-News reporter Mike Roark in his story in today’s edition.
In addition, this ACU-produced video captures a variety of perspectives from leaders attending Connected Summit:
