Five Fruitful Years of Collaboration
As we enter our 6th year, the Profweb Team would like to take this opportunity to highlight the wealth of innovative information technology data in our pages. We at Profweb once again thank those members of the Quebec College Network who have so generously shared their efforts with their colleagues across the province.
Profweb is bursting with new ideas, ingenious tools, teaching scenarios and wise counsel! The contributions of our IT Partners as well as our readers have resulted in more than 200 columns and stories (250 authors have written 238 columns, 212 stories and 20 reports published in Profweb), several thousand resources and more than a hundred continuing education activity listings. We look forward to working with you and building upon the admirable achievements of these first five years.

Educational technology overflows with versatility or varied contexts; our recently referenced exciting new external sites reflect this diversity.

Make your Online Innovation Count - Refer Your Site
Last spring, we introduced a new service that allows our readers to reference their external educational websites.4 These sites were not created on Profweb and can be hosted on any other server, such as one in a college. They are listed as external sites in our Personal Space Index . They are an important addition and will be integrated into Profweb's collection of blogs, forums and wikis.
Icons representing resource types.The Personnal Space sites are classified this way to make viewing more effective.
A fine collection of resources produced by teachers for their classrooms or by pedagogical counselors for "their" teachers adds to the pedagogical patrimony that we are building with you and for you!
We're relying on readers of both linguistic communities to expand the range of sites listed so far. Send us your suggestions for sites to list!
We're also always on the lookout for material for stories and columns. Please let us know about your own work or the work of your colleagues that would be of interest!
