Boréal, TMU, York draw on technology to improve learning, student services

Three institutions in Ontario are drawing on technology to offer new learning experiences and improve their services. Collège Boréal’s paramedic program acquired an ambulance simulator that includes panoramic screens and a cabin mounted on hydraulic jacks to offer an immersive training environment. At Toronto Metropolitan University, Dr Sean Wise created an AI-powered chatbot called ProfBot, which draws on course material to act as a personal study assistant for students. Wise told University Affairs that the bot’s scope has been intentionally limited to make it less susceptible to abuse and improve its accuracy. Meanwhile, York University has announced that it will use MyCreds Verify to conduct secure verification checks of degrees and graduation status.
