Published Jun. 02, 2014
IDG's CIO magazine today announces Lynn University as a recipient of the 2014 CIO 100. The 27th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"For 27 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value," said Maryfran Johnson, editor-in-chief of CIO magazine & events. "Our 2014 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage."
Lynn University’s tablet-based learning initiative puts a transformational learning device into the hands of its students and empowers faculty to more creatively deliver the school’s Dialogues of Learning core curriculum. The program improves delivery of Lynn’s services to its students and provides an engagement tool for recruitment and retention efforts.
"A majority of the students feel that having an iPad in the classroom enhances their college experience,” said Lynn University Chief Information Officer, Chris Boniforti. “The device improves the learning environment with more interaction and engagement and it saves students money on textbooks.”
Boniforti and executives from the other winning companies will be recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards Ceremony, to be held Tuesday evening, Aug. 19 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
