Fresh Look, Fresh Content: Behind EdTech's Redesign

A new design and new content features make the magazine — and soon, the website — even more engaging.

The old and new EdTech: Focus on Higher Education Magazine

EdTech: Focus on Higher Education has always been committed to sharing the stories of education leaders who successfully leverage IT solutions to improve their institutions. Ten years in, that mission hasn't changed.

But as you've surely noticed, this issue looks a little different. The bones haven't changed: You'll still find the in-depth features; how-to tips, trends and tactics articles; product reviews; and big-picture, high-level insights that help IT leaders and campus officials do their jobs better. But we've added some muscle and cosmetic improvements to better engage readers and enhance their EdTech experience — in print and, by summer, online, optimized for all devices.

Higher Ed: Redesigned

From cover to cover, there's more to see, read and discover.

The most obvious change is the aesthetic. We're still celebrating higher ed IT success stories with big, glossy photos and firsthand accounts of how collegiate leaders made them happen.

But there's more to every story, and that's the case here too. Clean, modern font treatments; more callouts to relevant data and online resources; and reader-friendly "quick hits" of useful information — all of these changes will make it easier to consume our content and then apply these peer-tested and proven products, solutions and strategies to your own operations.

It begins with an overhauled section we're calling The Bulletin, where we provide noteworthy education and technology news you might have missed. Big changes are apparent as well in the product reviews, which include checklists of product specs and callouts to important features, along with the reviewers' impressions of the products after putting them through their paces.

We'll also be showcasing the best practices that inform and enhance technology deployments of all types via rotating departments with more visuals and takeaways. In this issue, we're introducing two departments: Get Smart, which provides learning on strategic initiatives; and Security Save, which details tools, techniques and processes about how security technology saved the day.

So, please, take a look and experience what the new and improved EdTech: Focus on Higher Education has to offer.
