"As I discussed at our last Senior Leadership Council meeting, members of my leadership team at CSUN and I have found great benefit from the value and services of the organization, and to our higher education community.   

WCET membership is especially beneficial as academic technology continues to evolve and the role of online learning and digital media expands.  The WCET Discussion Board and blogs are incredibly helpful on my campus, providing real answers in real time."
