Educate your website stakeholders about the “Net Generation”

February 25th, 2005 Karine Joly 5 Comments

Sometimes hundreds of thousand words are worth more than a short executive summary, especially in higher education. Does your VP need some hard cold (read “printed”) facts before entertaining your latest web bugdet request?
