Kudos to Software PhD

CaptureI love Amazon and utilize Yelp on a regular basis when I travel. I also check Angie’s List before purchasing any service (doctors, dentists, plumbers, etc.). Reading reviews and sorting products/restaurants/services based on average ratings allows me to be a savvy consumer.

Kudos to Mark A. Baker, associate registrar at Whitworth University, in Spokane, WA. for designing Software PhD, a web-based tool which allows educators to sift through reviews of various educational software.

I have had my share of software decisions to make in my many jobs in higher education. It’s a dizzing landmine littered with glowing vendor proclamations and a painstaking venture which requires enormous amounts of time contacting colleagues at other institutions in an effort to find out which software they are currently using. Software PhD holds a lot of promise for making this crucial (and oftern underestimated) job much, much easier.
