Going Back to the Source with Linux

Christophe Reverd Learning Technology Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation

Even if the exact date of its birth isn’t quite clear, one thing is for sure: Linux, the much-lauded free and open source operating system turned 25 in 2016.

Strategies and Tools for the Dreaded Oral Presentation!

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Oral presentations are widely used across college disciplines with most students having at least one oral presentation each semester. Many students are not comfortable doing this task, luckily there are strategies and alternatives that can be implemented to help students succeed. After discussions with several colleagues in the network, I have confirmed my theory that using a combination of tools and strategies can bring about positive results when it comes to oral presentations.

Transition to Electronic Marking with iAnnotate

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Are you feeling ready to make the move to correcting assignments electronically? Are you overwhelmed by the number of tools that exist? This article will explain one teacher’s experience with an application she has been using for several years. Anna Dera, a Biology Teacher at CEGEP Champlain St. Lawrence wanted a tool that made the transition to marking electronically simple; something that allowed her to continue writing notes, “by hand”. She began marking electronically on a laptop with a touch screen and a special stylus pen. Soon after, she started using an iPad, and in her search for an application that would allow her to continue this new electronic marking technique, she discovered iAnnotate, which has remained her marking tool of choice for over 6 years.
