Higher Ed, Where’s the Mobile Content?

Category:Higher Education,Infosec Communicator,mobile device,Uncategorized Tags : 

In general, the pace of change far exceeds the ability of any large organization to adapt and adopt, be it a professional organization, an educational institution, or many companies. Mobile content is a good example. Although we’ve know that the rate of adoption is high, in a recent Chronicle of Higher Education Wired blog posting,  Kelly Truong stated that a research study at Ball State University found that about 90% of students were using their smartphones to access the internet.

At the Rochester Institute of Technology, we’re seeing some movement towards providing mobile content, including online coursework. The E. Philip Saunders College of Business has also designed a smartphone app for their students.

Do you use a smartphone to access the internet? Are you happy with the experience? Are any of your companies/colleges, etc. designing web pages for mobile users? Are you designing coursework for mobile users? Developing any corporate apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.?

Best Security Awareness Videos for College Students

Category:Facebook,Information Security,Infosec Communicator,Internet Safety,Social Networking,Uncategorized Tags : 

Each fall, the RIT Information Security Office provides a Digital Self Defense orientation to first year students. The session helps the students understand the information security threats they will face. We also communicate their responsibility for keeping themselves and others safe online. As you might imagine, keeping the attention of these students midway through their orientation week can be challenging. To help hold their interest, we use a number of security awareness videos in our presentation.

The list of videos below includes an amateur and professional videos and student-created entries in the EDUCAUSE Annual Security Video contest.
