HEH 15: HighEdWeb Memphis

We delve a bit deeper into Daniel’s trip to the HighEdWeb conference in Memphis. He shares the take-aways, and we chat about how all of us can implement some of the things talked about (centralized web support across campus – pay vs. no-pay).

    • Keeping yourself off an attacker’s radar
