Pic: Rocky Steps. So corny, but so necessary!

Update (October 31, 2011):
I took this picture on the iconic “Rocky Steps” of the Philadelphia Museum of Art while I was in Philadelphia for the Educause Annual Conference. I took a nice out-and-back 5 mile run along Boathouse Row on the Schuylkill River, and finished with the touristy Rocky experience.

Looking Forward to Educause 2011

I will be attending the Educause 2011 Annual Conference at the Philadelphia Convention Center next month (Oct. 18-21). I have been attending the Educause annual conference since 2006. It is always great to hear the ways other universities are using instructional technology, especially when they present assessment data to go along with their solutions.

My team will be giving a presentation at this year’s conference on our experience developing and supporting the official mobile application for The George Washington University. We launched the iOS version of GW Mobile in January 2011, and released an Android version in April 2011. To date, the app has been downloaded over 10,000 times across the two mobile platforms.

I am also excited to hear Seth Godin speak at one of the conference’s general sessions. I expect him to have some interesting things to say to the higher education community.
