BCNET is a consortium of 26 higher education institutions in British Columbia that range from Canada’s second largest Research University to a 513 student Indigenous Institution. As well as managing the advanced research network on behalf of CANARIE (Canada’s equivalent to Internet2), BCNET offers a slate of over 24 shared services, including such products as Kaltura, Moodle, Lynda.com, SurveyMonkey, and sectoral licensing amongst other items.

Managing services at an institutional level can be challenging; managing services across an entire sector even more so. As BCNET's members grow and adapt to changes in technology and the needs of their students, BCNET has worked to strategically grow their shared services portfolio in conjunction with these external demands. In recent years, this has led to an increasing desire for more shared services that fall within the EdTech field.

In this session, members of the BCNET Shared Systems and Technologies team will provide an overview of BCNET, discuss the processes they go through to offer shared services to an entire Province, and touch on a few of the exciting new services offerings on their horizon including BigBlueButton and Riipen. With +24 services utilized by over 300,000 unique ID’s, BCNET truly has reshaped Higher Education learning in BC.
