About FutureU

"The program that you provided our 160+ online faculty members and several staff was immediately relevant to the context of teaching and learning at Thompson Rivers University. You clearly took the time needed to understand our needs and to tailor the training program to those needs. We received many comments from our faculty attesting to the time and effort you put into this endeavour. It seemed many times that you went over and above what was expected of you in regards to the amount of time that you spent answering questions and troubleshooting problems. "
