__The next step is to go directly after the textbooks and digital course content made by Pearson and McGraw, Silagadze said in an interview. In November, they launched an online content marketplace, where professors can create course materials and sell it around the world. The idea is to cut out the publisher and let professors sell directly to students and each other, Silagadze said. – The potential for building the go-to marketplace for educational content is what attracted Union Square Ventures __

The Agenda with Steve Paikin - Black on Trump

Black on Trump

YouTube

Published on Feb 10, 2017

A year ago, almost no one expected ever to say the words: President Donald Trump. But Conrad Black has known the new president for 25 years, and well before Trump even took the stage as the Republican nominee, Black wrote – back in March of 2016 – that Trump ,seems to have become the man whom the great office of president of the United States now seeks., What did he know that so few others did?

Affordability – Results from the 2015 Ontario Post-Secondary Student Survey

ousa.ca
As an advocate for many of Ontario’s university students, OUSA prides itself on keeping their voices at the forefront of discussions about systemic change. To this end we survey our membership to ensure that we have the best possible information about their experiences, and can make recommendations for improvements. This report is one in a three part series that presents the results from the 2015 Ontario Post-secondary Student Survey. The discussion herein will assist our organization in determining students’ use of financial assistance, employment earnings, and other sources of income that are used to pay for postsecondary education.

__”Average tuition in Ontario is $8,114 and our respondents reported spending an average of $540 on textbooks and course packs; that’s about $8,650 minimum per academic year.” _ Going forward, the government should focus its policy efforts on improving assistance programs for Students with low family incomes and Students with dependents, married Students, and part-time Students.

Joe Stella

“Marketing in 1965 was the same thing as advertising. We called it marketing, but it was advertising. As advertising has faded away, marketers have tried to turn the Internet into advertising. My argument is: Real content marketing isn’t repurposed advertising, it is making something worth talking about.”

‘You Need Editors, Not Brand Managers’: Marketing Legend Seth Godin on the Future of Branded Content

contently.com

We sat down with Seth Godin, the godfather of modern marketing, to get his take on the present and future of content marketing.

Everyone who interviews you describes it as this amazing, life-changing experience. What do you think makes you such a good interview?

I don’t think I change anybody’s life. I think sometimes people decide to change their own life, and if I can be present for that, that’s a nice thing to do.

Why do you think you have that influence on people, then?

Well, I think that showing up every day for 10 years or more in a row gives people a hint as to what it is you’re actually trying to accomplish. There’s a mindset by some people who do content marketing that you give a couple of times, and then it’s all about the getting. And I’m not interested in the getting—I’m just trying to make a change in the universe that we can all be pleased with.

__A very insightful discussion about protocol in using ‘Open’ as a modifier in a 5R’s Open Community. . . per comments: “I do think we need to reserve the use of the term “open” to refer to practices that bestow the 5R permissions _ Your warning about reserving open in education is for 5R activities is a valid point” _ Defining terms is important, but one I find fraught with both benefits and challenges _ So, while I agree that 5R’s are an important piece of open pedagogy (helps clarify), I worry that it then starts to restrict activities that, I think, are open pedagogy.

It allows faculty to “check the OER box” while still paying for Cengage proprietary content. This is not the last OER vaccine we will see from a major publisher desperate to sell their content for a few more semesters.” _ https://opencontent.org/blog/archives/4882 _

__Merging to focus on telling the story of how much members contribute to Canada’s Education Sector, Canada’s Creative Sector and Canada’s Economy __

Canadian Education Research Council (CERC) to merge with Canadian Publishers’ Council (CPC)

thebpc.ca

February 1, 2017 –Today CERC announced the completion of its merger with CPC, combining Canada’s largest K-12 publishers with their counterparts in Higher Education to create a powerful voice for Canada’s Educational Publishing sector across K-20, at a critical time for the sector.

Since its formation in 1996, CERC has been a crucial voice for the creators of Canadian classroom resources for students and teachers in the Elementary and Secondary School system in Canada. Its member firms account for some 80 percent of the curriculum-based learning resources purchased each year across the country. CERC has worked closely with provincial and school board authorities to ensure that K-12 students continue to have access to high quality, Canadian-developed learning materials in both print and digital formats.

CPC, founded in 1910, represents major Trade, Professional and Higher Education publishers in Canada. Its members produce the majority of resources that serve the Post-Secondary, Consumer and Professional markets in Canada, supporting over eight thousand authors and providing more than $36 Million in royalties to Canadian creators each year.

“We are very excited to welcome CERC to the CPC organization. CERC and CPC merging will help us streamline our administrative efforts so we can focus more energy and resources on telling the story of how much our members contribute, both to the sector and economy, but as importantly to Canadian classrooms,” said Kevin Hanson, President of CPC and President of Simon & Schuster Canada.

__In fact, a close look at the Copyright Board’s analysis revealed that [-] virtually all copying of books, newspapers, and periodicals in the large sample reviewed by the Board was covered by fair dealing and did not require a licence from Access Copyright. Moreover, the Board found that copying 1 to 2 pages from a book is insubstantial and does not even require a fair dealing analysis. __

Federal Court of Appeal Upholds Copyright Board's Fair Dealing Ruling - Michael Geist

Federal Court of Appeal Upholds Copyright Board’s Fair Dealing Ruling – Michael Geist

michaelgeist.ca
The Federal Court of Appeal has issued its ruling in the judicial review of the Copyright Board’s ruling involving copying in Canadian K-12 schools. The decision is the latest in a growing number of decisions that have all adopted the same, flexible approach to fair dealing. Access Copyright has spent years (and millions of dollars) losing challenges on what was readily apparent from the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2012 copyright pentalogy: the value of the Access Copyright licence is very limited in light of authorized copying and fair dealing.

__David Harris of OpenStax, and David Wiley of Lumen Learning are understandably concerned about the ways their businesses will be affected by online e-Text / inclusive access business models which combine proprietary content with teacher-selected OER content __

David Wiley, chief academic officer at Lumen Learning, touched on the same concerns in a blog post reflecting on the evolution of open educational resources. “Five years ago, in an essay called 2017: RIP OER?, I pondered whether this year would be the end of OER.”

Is 'Inclusive Access' the Future for Publishers?

Textbooks aren’t selling like they used to, but a new business model that has led to increased access to course materials and lower costs at some universities is beginning to take shape.

January 31, 2017
“The inclusive-access model, common at some for-profit colleges but gaining traction in other sectors of higher education, has previously been described as a “win-win-win” situation. Colleges can point to fewer students who go without course materials and to — they hope — improved student outcomes. Publishers gain more reliable, recurring revenue. And students, since few of them tend to opt out from the model, benefit from volume discounts, meaning they end up paying less for their course materials than if they had shopped for a traditional print book or ebook.”

Digital transformation continues to radically change the face of business in Canada. The advent of the collaborative economy, the rise of advanced robotics, the adoption of blockchain in financial services, and advances in autonomous cars are all a manifestation of the innovative nature of the global digital landscape. These innovations are ushering in a new era of convenience, affordability, and responsiveness that are expected to significantly disrupt traditional markets in the coming years. This accelerated wave of business transformation, however, comes amidst signs of interest rate hikes, changing global trade landscape, and heightening demand for skilled digital talent. In this dynamic environment, ICTC continues to drive a forward looking digital agenda for Canada by delivering advanced research and labour market forecasts, innovative talent programs, and evidence-based policies that chart a path forward for Canada in the global economy.

Succinct, thought-provoking article on a very important topic for edu-publishers

Death of the Textbook, Really

Death of the Textbook, Really

edtechdigest.wordpress.com  _

Will a new business model accelerate the digital revolution in course materials?

the momentum behind the new Inclusive Access model is palpable, and solutions to help institutions streamline Inclusive Access are already emerging. Moreover, campus stores have entered the scene to provide much needed course materials expertise, working with publishers to ensure pricing represents significant savings to students and facilitating the Department of Education’s opt-out provisions. With the right combination of market incentives and strategic partnerships in place, Inclusive Access looks to have a promising future.

It’s a well-worn observation that popular demand for digital music and news media precipitated new business models. The course materials market may soon reverse the polarity, with a new business model finally facilitating the digital revolution.

University of Calgary cuts 1,600 academic resources

University of Calgary cuts 1,600 academic resources

thegauntlet.ca

By Scott Strasser, January 16 2017 —

In the world of academia, knowledge is a commodity with rising costs — that much is evident within the University of Calgary’s libraries collections.

This year, the U of C’s libraries and cultural resources department has cancelled academic journal subscriptions valued at $1.5 million. The cancellations include roughly 1,600 academic resources, including 887 journals from prominent Taylor & Francis bundles.

The reveal of the cancelled subscriptions — several hundred of which went into effect on Jan. 1 — sparked anger from some U of C faculty members.

“These are not just minor journals. A lot of these are the flagship journals of many disciplines,” U of C geography professor Byron Miller said. “And many more are journals that are considered among the top-five most important in specific fields. It was pretty shocking to us.”

Miller said the journal cancellations will make it harder for U of C faculty members to perform their research.

Each week, RGD features a project case study by a Certified RGD Member in our RGD Word e-newsletter and on the website. After reviewing those submitted in 2016, four industry professionals with a business/media background have identified the case studies they feel best articulate the design process and demonstrate the value design can bring to business.

RGD’s case studies highlight the thought, research and insight involved in developing a project, providing details on challenges, solutions and results that often occur through the design process. By establishing an archive of case studies that cover a wide range of projects, RGD’s goal is to build understanding and respect for the role of design in business and put a spotlight on the specific objectives and deliverables that can be addressed through the power of design.

2016: The Year I Failed Retirement

2016: The Year I Failed Retirement

tonybates.ca

The new age of retirement

I decided in April 2014 ‘to stop (nearly) all professional activities from now onwards’. I argued that ‘it is dangerous for a consultant to become adrift from the reality of teaching and management’ and ‘this is not a profession where you can be half in and half out.’

In particular, I wanted to write a ‘farewell’ book that would try to capture my expertise for those who might benefit from 40 years of teaching online and at a distance. I completed that book, Teaching in a Digital Age, almost exactly a year later, in April, 2015.

I realised that this might entail some follow-up, such as appearances at conferences or webinars to publicize the book, but that ought to be over by the end of 2015. 2016 would be the year to finally let go, play lots of golf, travel with my wife and fix all the things around the house that I’ve been putting off for years.

So how is that going? . . .

Curriculum Associates: Blended Success Story

huffingtonpost.com

Curriculum Associates may be the most important EdTech success story you don’t know about.

It’s headquartered in North Billerica, Massachusetts, not in Silicon Valley. The former workbook publisher has never taken venture capital, instead bootstrapping an adaptive learning business from scratch. In four years, the company has grown into a $190 million blended learning giant. They extended their impact exponentially while traditional publishers shrank each year.

Ageism. Advertising’s other dirty secret.

medium.com

I was between gigs awhile ago, bemoaning my fate to an ad titan over a glass of wine. I’d been told by many it was hopeless, I had almost accepted it as fact. After all, I intoned, “I am a woman of a certain age.” He snorted with laughter. “Yes you are. And that’s your greatest advantage. You have a network and wisdom — neither of which you had at 25, and both of which are priceless.”

Buck the trend. Hire those over 45 and you will win in the long run. Here’s why.

UVic students make push for open textbooks – News

saanichnews.com

The high cost of post secondary textbooks is hurrying the advent of free textbooks though the online model of open educational resources (OER).

On Thursday and Friday of last week Maxwell Nicholson, the campaign and community relations director of the University of Victoria Student Society, and UVSS director at large Carl Haynes greeted students with their #Textbookbroke promotion as they exited the UVic Bookstore.

Students could post the dollar amount from their purchase on a whiteboard and pose with it on social media for a chance to win $300 towards textbooks.

“We’re trying to raise awareness of the malpractice of how [textbook] publishers stifle competition to protect profits, forcing students to lose tons of money from an unnecessary update,” Nicholson said.

__Alan Levine is offering an Attribution Tool he created for Flickr Photos _

I often feel lonely fighting for attribution for photos openly shared for reuse under Creative Commons licenses. Beyond advocating to a level of boring people, I have built a simple browser bookmarklet tool that makes the process of getting an attribution statement for web sites a simple cut and paste operation.

It’s more or less something I made for myself, because the round trip from flickr to my blog editor was about a 6 step round trip of cut and paste, and often I was not consistent.

The impact of math textbooks in California – Brookings Institution

brookings.edu

Executive SummaryTextbooks are one of the most widely used educational inputs, but remarkably little is known about their effects on student learning. This report uses data collected from elementary schools in California to estimate the impacts of mathematics textbook choices on student achievement. We study four of the most popular books in the state from 2008-2013 and find that one—Houghton Mifflin California Math—consistently outperforms the other three. The superior performance of California Math persists up to four years after adoption and shows up in grades 3, 4, and 5.

The textbook impacts we identify are educationally meaningful and come at an extremely low cost. . .

  1. Scientific progress and collaboration benefit from an early and continuing commitment to the establishment, description, curation, maintenance, validation, discoverability, accessibility, and distribution of scientific data.
  2. Scientific data should be openly accessible to the extent permitted by law and subject to privacy, confidentiality, security, and other appropriate restrictions (e.g., recognizing proprietary interests, business confidential information, and intellectual property rights).
  3. Government-supported scientific data should be available without charge whenever feasible.
  4. Partners in international science and technology cooperative activities should establish a data management plan at project initiation that considers the full data lifecycle for scientific data.
  5. Federal agencies should encourage technical and legal interoperability to facilitate international sharing of scientific data, using compatible, publicly available and open source formats.
  6. Government-supported scientific data (and publications) should be made openly available as early as possible, with the timing of release and the duration of any exclusive-use period explicitly defined.
  7. Federal agencies should work with international science and technology partners to adopt policies and data standards that encourage open sharing of data for collaborative activities.

IPA reproaches Canadian minister’s copyright comments

internationalpublishers.org   December 22, 2016

The IPA has added its voice to those of the Union of Quebec Writers and Writers (UNEQ), the Canadian National Association of Book Publishers (ANEL) and the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organizations (IFRRO) in response to troubling comments made by the Minister for Higher Education, Hélène David, on 9 December.

In response to a parliamentary question about whether as Minister of Higher Education and a former Minister of Culture, she would ‘send clear guidelines to Quebec universities to ensure that the creators are respected and that copyright is paid to them’, Minister David asserted that Laval University did things that are comparable (to those of Copibec), that are respectful of copyright, and that it acted ‘in accordance with the copyright principles of the federal government’.

Copibec, which represents authors, creators and publishers, has been involved in a legal dispute with Laval University which in June 2014 implemented an internal copyright policy based on the refusal to pay royalties.

The IPA wrote to the Higher Education Minister, putting the Prime Minister and Culture Minister in copy, reminding her of the importance of a national reproduction rights entity.

A major inflection point for addressing Canada’s innovation woes – Very exciting news for the Canadian tech sector

Ottawa plans to boost spending on new tech from Canadian startups

Ottawa plans to boost spending on new tech from Canadian startups

theglobeandmail.com

The federal government is looking to boost the amount it contracts out to startups as part of its attempt to spur on Canada’s emerging technology sector and create economic growth.

Ottawa earmarks just $30-million of its vast $18-billion annual procurement budget to buy new technologies from startups through its Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP).

That is not nearly enough, according to Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains. “It’s very modest and we can do better,” he said in an interview. “This is something we’re pushing very hard … I would like to see this in the budget.”

__The question Kent Anderson asked stemmed from discussions in this post _ CC-BY, Copyright, and Stolen Advocacy by Rick Anderson ⋅ Mar 31, 2014 _https://lnkd.in/echYe8y https://lnkd.in/ewS92Sp

Does Creative Commons Make Sense?

Does Creative Commons Make Sense?

scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org
Apr 2, 2014 –

The answer for some is, “Yes.” But those who answer in the affirmative may not be the authors Creative Commons purports to serve.

As noted above, copyright forms the basis of Creative Commons. Without copyright, no author could choose a license, as there would be no license to grant. In choosing a license, an author is making a statement about what she or he is willing to let others do with or to their published and copyrighted work.

Unfortunately, Creative Commons licenses are relatively opaque and difficult to differentiate for the average user. Ask a researcher their initial reaction to a CC BY vs. a CC BY-SA vs. a CC BY-NC-SA license, and you’re going to be met with blank stares. However, authors tend to understand copyright to at least a functional level — that is, if I have copyright, I have the ability to protect my works from everything except educational and similar benign uses. For wonks like us, we know there’s a lot more to it, but that’s actually a good functional understanding for most academics. Copyright is generally better understood.

Why isn’t every college implementing similar programs given the simple fact that college continues to be too costly for our students?

UWF expands Textbook Affordability Program to remove financial barriers for students

UWF expands Textbook Affordability Program to remove financial barriers for students

news.uwf.edu

The University of West Florida recently expanded its Textbook Affordability Program after a successful pilot launch. The program, implemented by the Office of the Provost and the John C. Pace Library, aims to reduce student costs by ensuring access to course-required print textbooks.

“It is important for institutional units to contribute to student success,” said Robert Dugan, dean of libraries at UWF. “The UWF Textbook Affordability Program was planned and implemented to provide access to the textbooks undergraduate students need to succeed in their courses by removing textbook costs as a barrier.”

To date, the University has purchased one copy of every required print textbook for every section of 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 level courses and made them available for students to loan. If in the process of monitoring queues, a book is requested five times while on loan to another student, the library purchases a second copy of that book.

Students Are Embracing Technology in Higher Ed. Where Do We Go From Here?

Students Are Embracing Technology in Higher Ed. Where Do We Go From Here?

huffingtonpost.com

Today millions of college students are embracing digital learning technology. This was made especially clear by McGraw-Hill Education’s recent 2016 Digital Study Trends Survey. The results show just how central technology has become to the student experience:

  • Four out of five students say digital learning technology is contributing to improvements in their grades.
  • Eighty-eight percent say their smartphones have been helpful for studying.
  • Most college students agree that digital learning technology should adapt to their unique way of learning (89 percent) and be individualized (80 percent).
  • The majority of college students surveyed (61 percent) prefer to enroll in classes that use digital learning technology.

So where do we go from here?

Last week, a reporter from EdSurge reached out to me to shed some light on what Pearson called their Learning Design Principles. The EdSurge article is here, but below is a more detailed rough draft of the points that I made to share. I am posting them here for a fuller picture of some of my thoughts.

University websites: The so-so, the bad, and the egregious

universityaffairs.ca

Yes that’s right, it’s time to take a look at university websites and why they are perennially difficult and unpopular. For quite a while I’ve been meaning to write a post about this; it’s a problem that’s ongoing, and one that generates much wailing and gnashing of teeth among regular users of the sites, including current students and faculty. Yet it’s something that never seems to change, or if it does change, it’s merely “upgraded” to a system with new and equally infuriating flaws.

So why are university websites often terrible? Or, to rephrase that, why are these sites apparently impossible to construct in ways that work for their users?

Last week, Pearson announced the release of some resources they have created around science-based learning design. (Full disclosure: Pearson is a client of our consulting company, although we have not consulted with them on the subject of this post.) The resources in the release include the following:

  • 102-page rubric the company has started using for evaulating curricular products based on their effective use of learning design principles—released under a Creative Commons license
  • white paper describing how they are beginning to apply these principles to their own product designs
  • A few links to descriptions of early examples of these principles as they have been applied in released products.
  • A blog post providing some more background and perspective by David Porcaro, Pearson’s Director of Learning Design, whose team is behind this effort.

__Who is Keypoint Intelligence? Keypoint Intelligence is a brand built upon two great companies, Buyers Lab and InfoTrends. __ Barb Pellow shares the journey that BLI and InfoTrends took to evolve into Keypoint Intelligence. It also outlines the steps that we will be taking to formally establish our combined brand in the market.

The Branding Journey

Defining a brand, especially after an acquisition, is a process of self-discovery. We took the following key steps to guide our branding journey:

1. Start with Customers

Every branding process should start with reaching out to your customers to determine their thoughts and views about your company. Customers of both Buyers Lab and InfoTrends were asked to describe how they felt about the brands and what they perceived as the bene?ts and challenges of unifying the brands. What we learned is that both companies possessed high level of brand equity. In speaking to our customers, one of the key takeaways was that neither brand should be lost in the process. As a result, the members of senior management decided to establish an overarching brand that captured the essence of the combined companies, but kept the name of each intact as divisions of Keypoint Intelligence.

2. Engage Internal Staff

Successful brands are aligned with their organizations’ short- and long-term strategies. Your staff members are a key resource for realistically defining your brand messaging based on your actual capabilities. Keep in mind that your brand promise needs to meet customers’ expectations.

For our branding effort, we conducted a workshop with staff from InfoTrends and Buyers Lab. During the event, ideas were freely exchanged, opinions were shared, and insights were gained. This event enabled us to clearly define the following foundational elements to develop our brand:

  • Our mission
  • The benefits and features of our products and services
  • What customers already think about InfoTrends and BLI
  • The qualities we wanted associated with the combined entity

3. Define the Differentiation

Understanding key points of competitive differentiation is critical to a brand. During this step, organizations must develop an understanding of where they are in relation to their competitors. We spent time developing our unique value proposition during this stage. When it comes to effectively positioning your brand, you must clearly identify what sets you apart from your competitors and use this as a guide for branding, marketing, and messaging.

 

4. Create a Message Map

An essential step in brand development is creating a message map. For those unfamiliar with message mapping, it is a framework that is used to create compelling, relevant messages for various audience segments and for internal organizational alignment. Whether you are launching your company, rebranding, introducing the next big product/service, or preparing for other major marketing campaigns, messaging mapping is an important step in effective communication.

Message Mapping for Keypoint Intelligence 

The message map helped our team define the key messages that needed to be communicated to our customer base. The most important component of the message mapping process was determining what our brand meant to us. We viewed this as defining the “soul” of our brand, and it resulted in developing the following fundamental beliefs:

  • WE BELIEVE that good data leads to good decisions.
  • WE BELIEVE in honesty and candidness.
  • WE BELIEVE in the value of listening and learning.
  • WE BELIEVE in promoting a family culture.
  • WE BELIEVE in always being focused, present, and available.
  • WE BELIEVE that having total trust is essential.
  • WE BELIEVE in enabling and supporting success.
  • WE BELIEVE in the power of collaboration and teamwork.

In addition, we identified two critical terms that should be associated with Keypoint Intelligence. The first is confidence. As a combined organization, we want our customers to feel like they are working with the most reliable and unbiased information so they can make the best decisions for their businesses. The second is partner. We want our organization to continually convey a deep understanding of our customers, their products, and their business objectives. A sharp focus on these areas establishes us as a true and meaningful PARTNER to our customers in every sense of the word. We want our customers to understand that they can trust us to always tell the truth, even when it’s tough to hear.

5. Establish a Clear Brand Strategy

Another important function of the message map is that it establishes a clear brand strategy, which provides the clarity that staff members need to make the brand successful. It tells them how to act, how to win, and how to meet the organization’s goals. Our efforts resulted in a decision to brand BLI/InfoTrends under the parent company Keypoint Intelligence. The name captures the following critical messages that we want to convey to the market:

We blend key insights with pointed information to give our customers an unrivaled set of tools for success. We are the best partner to be there at the moment of truth when critical decisions are made.

Our branding messages are built on the premise that the market clarity and insight we provide will give our customer base a greater confidence in the decisions that they make. We want our customers to view us as a partner that goes deep beyond the surface—transforming data into intelligence, and testing into tools to give our clients a competitive advantage in the market.

According to Deanna Flanick, Chief Revenue Officer of Keypoint Intelligence, “Our new brand identity is a strong representation of what sets us apart in the global digital imaging intelligence marketplace. Our new double diamond mark represents the two companies coming together, and the vibrant orange spot where they overlap indicates a ‘Keypoint,’ one of the many deep insights that only we can provide.”

Keypoint Intelligence’s Logo

6. Apply and Execute

This step is where the pedal hits the metal in building out and activating your brand. It is the execution phase, and all of us at Keypoint Intelligence are in this phase now. We are currently updating our website, signage, business cards, and deliverable templates. Beyond the cosmetics of a rebranding, though, we are also uniting our strengths across the organization to meet our brand promise to customers and the greater industry that we serve. That means ensuring that we deliver intelligence to you… Keypoint Intelligence!

Online and technology-enabled learning continues to evolve and grow providing increasing access and opportunities for learners to pursue education in flexible ways to meet their needs. In 2013, the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) committed $72 million over five years to support the development of eCampusOntario and the provision of high quality online learning experiences for Ontario’s postsecondary students.
eCampusOntario initiated the process to build its fi rst strategic plan in late Fall of
2015. After an open call for proposals, StrategyCorp was selected to guide planning
activities. Foremost among these activities was a full schedule of consultations with
eCampusOntario stakeholders. Multiple focus groups were hosted with students and
with member institutions. In addition, surveys were sent to a large and diverse group
of learners, as well as to every publicly assisted college and university in Ontario. A
separate Faculty Supports Project collected feedback and input from faculty and
online learning practitioners across the province.
The eCampusOntario Strategic Plan maps the direction for eCampusOntario to the
end of March 2018. This document represents a summary of this plan.
