Campus Technology Goes Totally Digital
- By Campus Technology Staff
Campus Technology is entering a new era in its 24-year history as a magazine serving the educational technology market. Beginning with its August issue, Campus Technology will become an entirely paper-free, digital publication. The July issue will be its last as a traditional print magazine.
Starting in August, you will receive your issue through an e-mail message with a link that will lead you to a newly designed online version of Campus Technology. This digital version will continue to carry all the quality features, columns, and news stories you’ve come to expect from the print edition, in addition to more dynamic and immersive content. A tablet version will also be made available for the growing number of iPad and Android tablet users.
This all-new Campus Technology far exceeds the standard pdf versions people have come to associate with digital magazines. In fact, our traditional coverage will be enhanced by a variety of multimedia elements that will augment your understanding and knowledge of the field we cover. Along with text-based articles, there will be video interviews and demonstrations of the technologies we discuss, infographics, podcasts, and a greater selection of multimedia slideshows.
The print-to-digital conversion also reduces Campus Technology parent company 1105 Media’s carbon footprint by as much as 4.6 metric tons annually, equating to an estimated 125 tons of paper annually or roughly 23 trees.
As with our print edition, the August release of our new digital edition of Campus Technology will continue to act as a supplement to the original web-only content and breaking news that has been the editorial backbone of the website.
“Today’s education professionals work hard every day to deliver a 21st century education to their students,” said Wendy LaDuke, publisher and president of 1105 Media’s Education Group. “Converting our education-focused publications to a 21st-century digital format allows us to support these professionals with easy access to engaging, interactive, up-to-the-minute information.”

An editor’s note in the August issue by Executive Editor Andrew Barbour will explain in greater detail.
