Sree Sreenivsan has been named Columbia University’s first chief digital officer. According to a memo obtained by All Things D, the goal of the appointment is “to ensure that we deploy new tools and technologies in interactive and distance learning to ensure the richest and most dynamic learning environment possible for Columbia’s students.”
