Abstract (up to 200 words):
In the 80's we consumed high-end graphics and multimedia. In the 90's we surfed the web. This decade will mark universal access and just in time information. From teenagers to insurance adjusters, the capture, assembly and delivery of content are as easy as snapping a picture. Cell phones, PDA's, 802 wireless local area networks and portals make the transport or access to content a personal, on demand option. However, from the early days of computing the same old adage applies: garbage in- garbage out. The difference is now we all have quicker, anytime access to what is often is construed as quality or accurate content. If we can manage quality and accuracy, how do we manage ownership? With content quality and ownership under control, how do we manage context? How do we balance providing requesters with all possible options so they can reach their own conclusions with narrowing the possibilities based on our knowledge? Within the educational or corporate structure, the opportunities and challenges are the same. The entity owns, creates and consumes information. This information -- knowledge -- can be used to enhance intellectual capital, generate revenue and elevate the level of performance of the entire entity which in turn creates value for students, professors, and institutions. Information architecture is the foundation for building an environment and infrastructure that promotes creativity, flexibility, and collaboration while delivering consistency, context and quality. The presentation will discuss how stewardship, governance and classification will enable a collaborative environment for e-learning and the assembly of content modules.
