A community consultation and a free event are being hosted as part of a
project commissioned by Eduserv on the use of SharePoint in the HE sector
The aim of this online consultation is to capture the reactions of a wide range
of HE stakeholders (i.e. managers, students, researchers, learning
technologists, lecturers, administrators and vendors) to SharePoint. This will
build on the data from a literature review and survey of IT Directors. We would
welcome responses to three questions about the IMPACT and potential
FUTURE USE of SharePoint in HEIs.
