The Campus Computing Project Founder to Launch New Study on AI, Virtual Classrooms

How will artificial intelligence, next-generation virtual classrooms, and other emerging technologies impact the future of higher education? A new research project from The Campus Computing Project founder Casey Green will examine "the potential for these technologies to significantly transform teaching, learning, and instruction in academic and instructional environments," according to an announcement released at the Educause Annual Conference.

The Campus Computing Project has a 30-year history of surveying CIOs and senior IT officers at colleges and universities across the country about the role of computing, e-learning, and information technology in American higher education. Launching this fall, the new eLearning 2.0 Project will "draw on campus conversations and a broad national network of campus officials" to "generate new data about how AI, next generation virtual classroom technology, and other emerging technologies will contribute to better institutional outcomes in areas such as academic integrity, curriculum, advising, career counseling, instructional design, support for faculty and students, and more," the announcement said. The research is sponsored by learning platform company Class Technologies.

"The emergence of AI and new virtual classroom technologies will be significant catalysts for change across all sectors of American higher education," said Green, in a statement. "Campus officials are eager for data and guidance that will benefit their institutions, faculty, and students. We are launching the eLearning 2.0 Project to provide timely data and insights to help academic institutions navigate an exciting and high impact future."
