We continue the interview with Jeff Dillon of Ed Tech Connect with a solution for finding software.  That is not a simple problem to solve in the modern world of dozens and might be hundreds of options.  There are solutions that partially or completely address your needs.  However, you need a way to reduce those options to a few and then one.

Technology In Higher Ed – More Than Registration

Any university or similar institution lives and dies through registration.  They need students and want to make the sign-up process for those students as smooth as possible.  However, that is not a simple problem to solve.  The modern student profile and course requirements are complicated and tough to streamline.  Likewise, financial aid is its own headache and is almost unique to each situation.  That is the tip of the iceberg we explore in this episode.

A Little Background

Jeff has 21 years in higher education technology leadership at two public Universities. He was on the cutting edge of web development during that time and a leader in the mobile evolution.
He has founded three successful companies with the latest being EdTech Connect, a platform created to democratize the Higher Education conversation.

Over the past year, EdTech Connect has kept him on the leading edge of the future of Higher Education technology. That ranges from the latest in mobile apps and chatbots, to how institutions will soon be using Artificial Intelligence to enhance the student experience.  We will see how he can speak to many perspectives of Higher Ed Technology.
