Education is a fast moving target--especially when you're trying to educate students about computing and information technology.
Professors want to teach their students about the latest advances and give them experiences with the newest technologies, but it's not easy to develop a robust curriculum to support new, specialized technologies or concepts overnight.
Technology itself can provide assistance in this regard. From virtual experiments to massive open online courses, or MOOCs, technology has the capacity to enhance traditional learning experiences, expanding the limits of the classroom and bringing ideas to new audiences.
