In 2017, CTE surveyed Waterloo instructors about educational technologies they use in their courses. Of the nearly 70 technologies that were identified, we've selected the most popular and have briefly described them below. Most of these items also have at least one friendly contact: that is, a Waterloo instructor who has used the technology and is willing to share his or her expertise and experience with other Waterloo instructors. Additionally, the reasons for using the tool -- as reported by the Waterloo instructors -- is provided in the "purposes" table for each tool. Details pertaining to the project and the data it collected are available in this report (PDF).
