Secrets of AskAway Success

Monday, December 13th, 2010

We’ve started a series of Secrets of AskAway Success Spotlights on AskAway institutions focusing on how AskAway is promoted and managed at institutions who see a lot of AskAway usage. The aim of these Spotlights is to highlight and share information about successful strategies being employed across a broad range of institution types and locations.  The first two of these Spotlights are available on the Staff Portal Secrets of AskAway Success page:

  • Kwantlen Polytechnic University: a look at the many ways KPU is bringing AskAway to its learners, including making it available as a block in its Moodle online course management software;
  • University of Northern British Columbia: highlighting UNBC’s new iROAM pilot project, which works with the AskAway Qwidget to bring reference service to learners wherever they are.


More Secrets of Success Spotlights are planned for the coming months.  Interested in having a Spotlight on your institution?  Contact Sunni.
