Overview - Game Plan "Using Online Technologies in Post Secondary Education to Thrive" Online communications technologies continue to facilitate the types of interactions that human beings have been making for centuries only now we use digital means to conduct those interactions. New and emerging technologies are enabling students to thrive in the Post Secondary environment whether they are shy in the classroom or are unable to physically attend classes. These technologies are empowering students and educators but not without sometimes great efforts to change habits and to open channels for communication and interaction.
