      UT's launch of an online version of their successful on-campus Business Foundations Program is big news in the world of higher ed, and online learning. This spot was produced as an introduction to the online program and had a pretty wide net in terms of target audience. From undergrads at other schools to self-employed people, to those climbing the corporate ladder the program could help any or all of them. Our goal was to show just enough of the program to make it intriguing and presented in a fun way rather than just spew out a bunch of stats and figures.

        BCNET Conference 2015 What Factors Determine Cloud Computing Adoption by Colleges and Universities Many colleges and universities around the world are adopting cloud computing resources and services. The benefits of cloud computing for institutions and students include factors such as mobility, scalability, security, availability, interoperability, and end user satisfaction in the use of software applications and other computing resources. However, some institutions are not taking advantage of the services offered by the cloud computing paradigm. What are the factors that determine cloud computing adoption by some colleges and universities and not by others? The speaker conducted a study in 2013 of 119 CIOs and IT managers in colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada that had implemented, or were planning to implement, cloud computing environments. Data was gathered through an online survey. In the study, it was hypothesized that eight factors had a significant effect on cloud computing adoption: relative advantage, complexity, compatibility, institutional size, technology readiness, perceived barriers, regulatory policy, and service provider support. Attendees at this session will learn which of the eight factors determined cloud computing adoption by the respondent institutions. Data specific to the 18 Canadian institutions that responded to the survey will be presented. https://www.bc.net/what-factors-determine-cloud-computing-adoption-colleges-and-universities

          BCNET Conference 2015 BC Public Sector Security 2.0 Doing It Right the First Time! Garry Hawkings, Chief Information Security Officer, Long View Systems “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” - John Wooden Ten time NCAA national champion in a 12-year period, including an unprecedented seven in a row. He was named national coach of the year six times. It appears John was doing it right much of time! As clients move to a Hybrid IT environment and as threat vectors continue to evolve, Long View believes an increasing focus on Security is required. Hybrid IT environments do require additional consideration for security aspects such as control and location. Security should be approached as with all IT solutions using the knowledge of the enterprises security requirements and their ability to fund them. In this presentation Garry will share insights on the top security trends, leadership strategies that get it right from the beginning, effective targeted approaches to resolving security remediation priorities, and also help separate fact from fiction on BC’s FOIPPA Laws and how they relate to IT planning. https://www.bc.net/bc-public-sector-security-20-doing-it-right-first-time

                BCNET Conference 2015 What Got You Here Won't Get You There - The Next Steps for Higher Education CIOs Higher education IT organizations have historically been focused on infrastructure and operations, but today this traditional approach to IT is shifting.

                  BCNET Conference 2015 The View from a Sinkful of Dishes: A Non-Technical Perspective on our Digital Future Kathryn Anthonisen, Vice President, External Relations, CANARIE The digital revolution has taken all of us on quite a ride over the past twenty years – so much so that we have all become accustomed to rapid-fire change in every area of our lives, powered by ever-more sophisticated and intuitive technologies. So how does a relatively non-technical person, up to her elbows in a sinkful of dishes every night, envision the ongoing evolution of our digital world? Is it possible that we are giving up as much as we are gaining when we transform so much of our lives so quickly? How might we as a species be evolving as our technology evolves? Are there things we have or should have learned from our digital journey thus far? How should Canadians position themselves to derive, and deliver, maximum economic and social value from this ongoing revolution? Grounded in her exposure to world-class Canadian innovation through her role at CANARIE, Kathryn will present a wide-ranging view of both the benefits and ongoing challenges of our technology-driven environment, drawing on evidence from a range of sources to challenge our thinking about our evolving digital world. https://www.bc.net/view-sinkful-dishes-non-technical-perspective-our-digital-future
