Technologies for Collaboration & Learning

Often, the challenges you face, and the solutions we provide, involve technologies for collaboration and learning across distances such as video conferencing, web conferencing, or course and learning management systems.

These technologies create historic opportunities, but they also impact planning, employee morale, productivity, and the bottom line. Not always in a good way, either.

Did You Know?

For several years now, students have been participating in 100% online courses. But until recently, it was difficult to get faculty to do their own continuing ed that way. The tide seems to be turning though. Gradually, clients such as the Open Learning Division of Thompson Rivers University in British Columbia, have begun to accept programs as long as 12 weeks—taught entirely online. We never met in person with the 160 faculty we trained. Instead, we used real-time web conferencing and asynchronous, text-based discussion forums. We ran cohorts of 10 to 15 faculty at a time through a sequence of training modules. The decision-makers and participants reported being thrilled with the results.

“The program that you provided our 160+ online faculty members and several staff was immediately relevant to the context of teaching and learning at Thompson Rivers University. You clearly took the time needed to understand our needs and to tailor the training program to those needs. We received many comments from our faculty attesting to the time and effort you put into this endeavour. It seemed many times that you went over and above what was expected of you in regards to the amount of time that you spent answering questions and troubleshooting problems. “

Dr. Valerie Peachey, Director Program Delivery
Thompson Rivers University
Open Learning Division


“…the quality of the training program was excellent with the vast majority of our faculty indicating increased competence in using both [web conferencing] and [our learning management system].”
