VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS OVER SATELLITE NETWORK

Kimberley Dymond learned all about using technology in the classroom when studying to be a teacher in southern Canada. When she moved to Arviat in Nunavut, many tools that she used to teach in the south would not work on the standard Internet link provided to the school. So when the Connected North program launched in 2014, Kimberley got involved. Connected North relies on SSi Micro’s QINIQ network and Cisco’s TelePresence video collaboration system to link Arviat students to educational resources across Canada. Students describe the positive impact of Connected North in their classroom.

Video sponsored by SSi Micro, operators of the QINIQ broadband network in Nunavut. Thanks to high school students Elena Akammak, Shelby Angalik, Amber Kadjuk Price, George Kadlak, Jillian Kaviok, Juliet Kopak, Justin Kuksuk, Alissa ᒪᑐ (Matoo), Esther Nutarasungnik, Elaine Suluk, and teacher Kimberley Dymond for welcoming us into your classroom at John Arnalukjuak High School in Arviat. For more information on the program: visit Connected North and Cisco.

The QINIQ network provides affordable broadband internet access to people throughout Nunavut. Residential and corporate users have access to rich web content, e- commerce and online banking, video conferencing, voice-over-IP technologies and many other services that were inaccessible only a few short years ago.

The social and economic benefits are significant, and we feel it is important to showcase the many ways in which Nunavummiut use these technologies for day-to-day life. Check out these inspiring stories from users just like you.

If you are a QINIQ subscriber and have been impacted by its services, we invite you to submit your story to us for posting on this web site and on our QINIQ Facebook site.

Your stories are inspirational and will help us convey the vital importance of broadband connectivity in remote and rural communities. Your stories are real life examples of how high speed access can affect the lives of people in Canada’s North.

We believe that the QINIQ network is a model for other small communities across this country and around the world. Share your story with us and we’ll share it with others! Thank you.
