Qwogo Inc. is a provider of communication and collaborative technology solutions and services. With over 4 decades of experience spanning health care, education, business and research, Qwogo unites people, knowledge and software.
As a University of Alberta affiliated corporation that formed as a spinout from the Centre for Health Evidence (CHE), Qwogo combines solid e-Learning technology acumen with a healthy dose of innovation.
Initially under the portfolios of e-Learning and informatics, the CHE developed a number of eLearning integration and delivery technologies, unified in a Learning Community Management System suite. As these technologies grew in popularity, power and presence, the CHE built a robust information technology research and development unit. This group released a new series of "next generation" technologies over the last two years, serving as a flexible and extendable platform for diverse eLearning innovations.
Facing increasing demand and opportunity, while encountering increasing difficulties operating within a University framework, the CHE worked with TEC Edmonton through 2011 to create conditions for a smooth transition of the CHE research and development unit to a new university-affiliated and owned corporate entity by mid-2012. The result of this transition is the freedom to work within business funding and contracting norms while gaining the nimbleness needed to fulfill the promise of the new technologies.
