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.
