Interviews conducted during the Spring 2011 CNI Membership Meeting have been published by EDUCAUSE:
The podcasts include a conversation with plenary speaker Todd Presner, founder and director of HyperCities (a GIS research and education platform built on the Google Maps and Google Earth APIs), as well as an interview with UCSD University Librarian Brian Schottlaender on collaboration and the future of university libraries. EDUCAUSE producer Gerry Bayne spent time with a few other presenters and attendees at CNI’s spring meeting, including:
• Brian Owen (Simon Frasier Univ.), discussing the Public Knowledge Project
• Thomas Hickerson and Shawna Sadler on the Univ. of Calgary’s Taylor Family Digital Library, a converged library, archive, art and publishing facility
• Sayeed Choudhury (Johns Hopkins Univ.) with a Data Conservancy Update
• Robert Seal (Loyola Univ.) reflects on three years of an information commons Library-ITS partnership
These recordings are designed to function as an extension of the meeting, complementing the standard program, and providing an opportunity for the broader CNI community to hear from some of our key presenters and attendees.
The meeting was held April 4-5, 2011 in San Diego, CA. Thanks to all who attended and presented!

Executive Director, Next Generation Learning Challenges
On October 11, 2010, EDUCAUSE, in collaboration with the League for Innovation in the Community College, the International Association of K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) announced up to $20 million in funding for campuses, consortia, organizations, and government agencies as part of the first wave of grants for Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC). NGLC is a new effort to identify and scale technology-enabled approaches that dramatically improve college readiness and completion, particularly for low-income young adults. In this interactive session, attendees can learn more about NGLC, including future grant opportunities, and participate in an open dialogue with initiative staff.
