Campus Technology Magazine picks HUBzero as top innovation for 2011
Campus Technology Magazine is recognizing Purdue as a campus technology innovator for Signals, an early warning system that helps students succeed in their coursework, and HUBzero, a web-based platform allowing researchers to collaborate using computational models to study complex problems.
Campus Technology selected Signals and HUBzero for two of its 2011 Campus Technology Innovators Awards. The annual awards recognize higher education institutions for initiatives in educational technology that are models for other schools. Purdue has won five of the awards since 2006, all for technologies developed by Purdue’s IT staff.
Purdue is among 10 award winners for 2011 selected out of 393 nominations from higher education institutions worldwide. This is only the second time a school has won two of the awards in one year. The winners are highlighted on CampusTechnology.com and will be featured at the magazine’s Campus Technology 2011 conference July 25-28 in Boston and in its August print edition.
