The book envisions a dramatically different way of delivering courses; disaggregating and reassigning teaching functions; and increasing differentiation, collaboration, and innovation—all enabled by the appropriate use of information technologies.

The most critical issues facing higher education today, and possible solutions
Strategies for managing the cost of integrating information technologies into teaching and Learning
How to lead campus transformation using communication technologies
Connecting students and faculty through distance learning and telecommunication systems
The role of openness in the future of higher education
Offering new ideas on how to deploy emerging information and communication technologies, Advancing Campus Efficiencies will be a companion—both comfort and guide—for educators undertaking the work of inspired leadership that will be required to achieve the new design of higher education.
