Lotus IdeaJam – Hearts and Minds August 24, 2009

It was great to see that one (actually 3) of the stand-out ideas in the recent Lotus IdeaJam was centred around winning the hearts and minds of tertiary students.

This has been one of my hobby-horses for a number of years, and really is a bit of a no-brainer. Tomorrow’s business people are today’s students, and providing them with the collaborative technologies and capabilities early in their life will establish appropriate and emerging practices that they will carry into their business lives.

Let’s hope something meaningful is taken up from the IdeaJam around this very important issue, and that our Universities will reap the reward sooner rather than later.

I share your enthusiasm. I teach an undergraduate course: MGT430-Technology for Business Decision-making and I always try to discuss Notes, Exchange, SharePoint, etc. It would be great to be able to give my students access to the Lotus programs to experience for themselves.

I am currently working with a UK university and I know that this university and others in the UK are introducing Lotus tools to the student bodies. I agree with you, the tools that student use today are the tools that business will use in a few years because the students are familiar with them.

As a result of the enthusiastic voting in favor of getting Lotus product in the hands of students, I plan to announce a solution for those students interested in getting things done (GTD) with eProductivity. Contact me off-line at my blog for details
