If you teach in the Québec college system, chances are that you work with Omnivox. While MIO and LÉA are excellent for communicating with students quickly and easily, they are sub-optimal when it comes to sharing large quantities material.

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Now in its 16th year, the 2018 Higher Education edition of the Horizon Report is finally out. The Horizon Report is "a reference and technology planning guide for educators, higher education leaders, administrators, policymakers, and technologists." Each year, the report explores trends, emerging technologies and challenges to the adoption of education technology. When reading this year’s report, you will discover a considerable amount of Canadian content with examples of innovative approaches from across the country.

However, we had little feedback on the actual use of this technology by teachers.
