Institutions often implement learning environments and IT platforms as separate efforts despite their commonalities. Holistic planning and thoughtful attention to IT enterprise architecture will be key to successful implementation of both the next generation digital learning environment and next generation enterprise IT.
David Weil is Ithaca College's Associate Vice President and Chief Information Officer.
Previously, Dave was the College's first Director of Engagement and Implementation and led IT's efforts to engage and interface with the campus, provide SaaS and other application implementation services, and offer business process improvement services.
