Want to demo and review some of the latest educational technology?
eCampusOntario is seeking postsecondary educators to be part of its EdTech Review Group, which tests and reviews different types of educational technologies.
Educators who sign up will receive ongoing opportunities to participate in demo sessions, focus groups and review sessions for new tools and technologies. This feedback will help eCampusOntario determine whether to pursue some of these tools as formal pilot projects or potential shared services.
When new opportunities for testing and review arise, they will be shared (along with the deliverables and anticipated time commitment) with the pool of EdTech reviewers, who can then opt in for the tools they are most interested in.
Participants can undertake testing on their own time, on an as-needed basis. This is a fantastic opportunity for educators to meet like-minded professionals, explore emerging technology (both open-source and commercial) in a low-stakes environment and help shape eCampusOntario’s initiatives. Reviewers will also receive an honorarium in appreciation of their time and effort.
