Nunavut adults get high school diploma using innovative online program
Joe Aulajut never had the chance to complete his Grade 12 when he was young, as he had to stay home and help take care of older family members. When Nunavut Arctic College launched the Pathway to Adult Secondary School (PASS) Program that provides another route to obtain a Grade 12 diploma through distance learning, Joe signed up. He describes how he uses QINIQ to connect to his instructor, the learning content, and how he works with Maria Illungiayok (his local facilitator in Arviat), to succeed. Grade 12 graduates in Nunavut have terrific employment and training opportunities. Video sponsored by SSi Canada (https://www.ssicanada.com) operators of the QINIQ (https://www.qiniq.com) broadband network in Nunavut. Thanks to Maria Illungiayok, Joe Aulajut and Eric Anoee of Arviat, Nunavut for your enthusiastic participation in making this video.

Arctic students take hi-tech virtual classes 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 Canada’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 Canada (https://www.ssicanada.com) operators of the QINIQ (https://www.qiniq.com) 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.
