Hacking Higher Ed
It all begins with a session at the CASE Europe conference in Manchester on 01.09.15 in which Future Index and Smile will not only showcase some of the very latest and most relevant digital strategy trends in Higher Education and beyond, but also demonstrate just how institutions can make some of this happen for themselves. Have you been thinking how Google Cardboard, crowdsourcing, iBeacons and digital prospectuses can transform your world? Have you wondered just how you can get it off the ground? This is the session for you.
At the end of the session we’ll all agree on a brief that both the Future Index and Smile will go away and develop within 24 hours, to showcase just how quickly great ideas can be embraced and implemented. This will take place in a world-first #CASEHack in nearby MediaCityUK with the highlights and final result being shared online and through social media – perfect to tap into via Smartphone during the rest of the Conference! Of course, the results will get published for all – so watch this space. But please do take part, either at the Conference or via the wonderful digital ecosystem! You can follow everything, and contribute of course, via our hack site at http://casehack.wearesmile.com
