3 Information Technology, supporting excellence IT Strategy Aims

4 Information Technology, supporting excellence A Vision of the Future We are moving towards a mobile, broadband society I see a near-future in which mobile terminals (phones, other handheld devices) have more processing power than todays laptops; with cognitive radio, they will select the best wireless system for the task in hand …terabit communications are not that far away Joe McGeehan, Professor of Communications Engineering, credited with pioneering many of the major developments in mobile communications.

6 Information Technology, supporting excellence What does that mean for Jane? Jane is woken by her mobile alarm, checks out the days todo list and diary and reads her email over breakfast whilst catching up on yesterdays soap in the corner of her laptop screen. She picks up a recorded lecture from last week as she cycles in (click here for podcasts). As she walks by the Students Union she sees a display of the weeks events and downloads timings and details to her mobile calendar. A message arrives saying her first lecture has moved, so she goes straight to the new Jane downloads images and notes during the lecture and annotates them, uploading them via the portal to her workspace afterwards. Shell use them when working on her essay later on in the library. A message arrives from a friend in a 2 nd Life seminar from another part of the course and they arrange to meet. (click here for 2 nd life)here The students compare notes and search video clips of lectures from the 3 rd year options to try to work out which to choose for their final year.

16 We are still some way off a modern and wholly integrated IT system. This, in part, reflects years of underinvestment but also a kind of natural conservatism and a fear of the sums of money involved.
