Is Eductive a new organization?

No. Eductive is the content distribution platform of the Support and Innovation in Digital Pedagogy hub of Collecto for their service offering aimed at the college network and financed by the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec.

The Support and Innovation in Digital Pedagogy hub of Collecto was created in 2020, following the merger of 3 organizations, each of which had been active in the college network for 15-30 years:

  • DECclic
  • Profweb
  • Vitrine technologie-éducation

Eductive replaces the content distribution platforms of those 3 organizations, which no longer exist independently.

Who is Eductive for?

Eductive is for the pedagogical staff of the Quebec college network, especially teachers.

Eductive is for you if you:

  • are interested in innovative pedagogical practices
  • are interested in pedagogical practices that integrate digital technology
  • are looking for inspiration to develop engaging and stimulating learning activities for your students
  • want to discover the pedagogical potential of tools that are free or already accessible to the staff of the college network
  • want to optimize your use of Moodle or a pedagogical website (blog or wiki)
  • want to interact with peers and experts to build knowledge on the practices and emerging uses of technology in higher education
  • want to develop your general technopedagogical skills
  • want to share your initiatives and experiences with other pedagogical staff members of the college network

…and we have yet more to offer!

Do the service offerings of DECclic, Profweb, and Vitrine technologie-éducation continue with Eductive?

Yes. The Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec continues to support the same services that were offered independently by DECclic, Profweb and Vitrine technologie-éducation. Those services are now grouped under a new identity: Eductive.

On Eductive, you will find the content published by the 3 organizations before their transfer to the new site. Starting October 19, 2021, the new contents, services, and activities shared will all be published under the Eductive banner.

What is Eductive’s positioning with regard to the other organizations of the college network?

The activities and services offered by Eductive are part of a collaborative and complementary approach with the organizations that are active in the college network. This positioning seeks to continue the mission of the 3 organizations that gave birth to Eductive.

Thus, Eductive supports the integration of digital technology by college-level teachers, notably by valorizing the products and services that are offered to them by other associations and organizations. Those products and services are shared in the activities calendar, in the resources section, and through the Eductive newsletter.

Furthermore, the contents of the Eductive website document the technopedagogical heritage of Quebec’s college network since 2005. Hence, Eductive promotes the diffusion of this heritage and of all the actors who have contributed to it.

Why “Eductive"?

Eductive evokes the idea that the field of education is an active and dynamic field, as much by its name as by the choice of its accompanying logo.

The logo is made of one continuous line and presents shades of a variety of colors. It represents interconnected journeys, information exchanges. It definitely has a “tech” look. The opening of the e indicates the starting point of an enriching and stimulating experience with multiple trajectories, which reflects Eductive as a whole.

The 1st part of the word, “Edu”, places Eductive in the world of pedagogical resources and services offered to teachers. The 2nd part, “-ive”, evokes a series of qualifiers that represents our vision and our approach to education:

  • active
  • creative
  • evolutive
  • participative
  • reflexive
  • etc.
Do you still offer web hosting services for pedagogical websites?

Yes. Eductive still offers Web Space, a hosting service for pedagogical websites (WordPress or Wiki) with a 1 GB capacity, which is free for the pedagogical staff of the Quebec college network. You must provide an institutional email address to request the creation of a Web Space.

Web Space’s terms and conditions will be revised in 2022. The users will be notified of eventual changes.

Web Space is offered thanks to the financial support of the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec.

Can I contribute to Eductive and, if so, how?

Yes. All teachers and pedagogical staff of colleges can share an experience of the integration of digital technologies or of pedagogical innovation. You can also suggest the name of one of your colleagues whose pedagogical accomplishments we could highlight to inspire other teachers.
