This is difficult enough when students are in the same room, but in a distance or hybrid learning environment, they are separated from each other and often don't know how to move forward effectively.

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne
