Free webinar! Student Success and digital changes on campus


Communication on our campuses has changed a lot over the past decade–the Chronicle of Higher Education shared this opportunity to explore what the University of Oklahoma is doing to boost digital tools to foster student success. 

FREE webinar on Thursday, June 27 at 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. EST) to explore the ways the University of Oklahoma implements “24/7 business automation tools to deliver superior student services faster and cheaper-and the totally unexpected quality of education delivery and morale benefits they experienced as a result.”

This webinar is not hosted by the tech folks on campus, but by an educator and an administrator.
