• SMART at Hamline

    What is SMART?

    The term SMART stands both for the interactive touch screen white boards made by SMART as well as the software Notebook 10 that enables the features of the SMART boards.

    Why SMART?

    Today's college or university student is a millennial learner - someone who has grown up with technology and is accustomed to it in every facet of life, including their school experience. That includes their classroom, where students have had years of exposure to the Internet, interactive whiteboards, audio and video recordings, and more.

    Hamline University's School of Education educates both pre-service and in-service teachers who will teach in classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards. Today's and tomorrow's teachers will be expected to provide instruction using touch enabled whiteboards.

    In 2015, Hamline created a steering committee to select an enterprise content management (ECM) system. After identifying several potential vendors with the help of many university departments, the steering committee is excited to announce that DocFinity was selected as the vendor.

    Hamline CIO Mark Kondrak was one of three CIOs invited to contribute to a panel discussion at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016, a preeminent gathering of more than 10,000 CIOs and Senior IT Executives from across the globe.
