The Office of the CIO sponsors a membership for all Ohio State University staff, faculty and students to the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). ECAR's goals are to understand the role of information technology in colleges and universities and foster informed decision-making on information technology applications and use. To register for free access to ECAR holdings, visit www.educause.edu/ecar and follow the directions on how to create a profile.
ELI is a community of higher education institutions and organizations committed to advancing learning through IT innovation. ELI works with the larger EDUCAUSE community to integrate these technologies and practices into the higher education mainstream.
