Campus Technology Releases First All-Digital Issue in the Publication's 24 Years

Chatsworth, CA – 1105 Media Education Group announces the release of the first all-digital issue of its higher education publication, Campus Technology (CT):view on your desktop/laptop now. This marks the beginning of the magazine’s permanent venture into the electronic publication landscape and makes it the first educational technology magazine to serve its tech-savvy readership by distributing its content in a completely innovative and interactive manner.

The new CT boasts rich multimedia features throughout the magazine, including videos embedded within articles, interactive and clickable ads, photo slide shows, live web feed, and social media functionality that allow readers to easily share content with peers and network from their desktop or laptop. A tablet-friendly version along with Apple and Android apps are currently in development and will soon be released. "Data and accountability are two terms used a lot in education right now but they also have meaning for us in publishing," stated Therese Mageau, editorial director of 1105 Media’s Education Group. "Much like how data can help schools better meet the needs of learners and maintain accountability to the communities they serve, data in publishing can help us better serve our readers. With this new interactive and digital format, every part of the magazine will yield us data on how our readers interact with the publications, which helps us continually improve the magazine, making it more responsive to our readership. In addition, the richer platform will make the content more engaging and actionable for our readers."

Multimedia highlights from the inaugural August digital issue of Campus Technology include: the incorporation of video and social media conversations in the feature titled, "Top 6 Wireless Challenges"; a photo slideshow displaying examples trending in today’s online academic journals in "Rewriting the Journal"; another slideshow that provides visual references to how several campuses are improving their cellular services in "Connecting the Dots in DAS"; as well as a three-video clip series demonstrating how University of Georgia is using a special survey tool that helps them monitor their IT performance in the article, “Masters of all they Survey.” More features are also included, supporting the same quality content for which Campus Technology is known.

Readers can expect even more dynamic content in future issues, including: animated covers, video interviews from industry leaders, “editor’s picks” product slideshows, event videos, plus much more.

Published and circulated traditionally in print since 1988, CT (formerly titled Syllabus) has delivered comprehensive educational technology information to thousands of dedicated subscribers. This free publication is widely used by higher education decision makers to explore ideas and technology tools for the advancement of higher education.
