About KnowQuest

The growing importance of applied education to the economy has necessitated a stand alone platform for applied content. The platform or content hub allows college users, professors, librarians and students to share, collaborate and rate assignments, projects, presentations, teaching learning plans, and other valuable resources to the college community of Ontario.

Ontario’s colleges offer more than 600 programs in everything from business, IT, paramedicine, aviation, tourism and hospitality, advertising and the skilled trades to animation, film, game development, biotechnology and much more.


Working closely with business leaders throughout the province, colleges provide an effective combination of theoretical learning and state-of-the-art training. Colleges are flexible and innovative, incorporating technological advancements into programs that are uniquely tailored to today’s students.
College education is affordable and highly accessible and colleges provide a range of credentials from diplomas to degrees to post- graduate certificates. More than 220,000 full-time students and 300,000 part-time students and learners are enrolled in Ontario’s colleges.

Ontario needs a more highly qualified workforce for the years ahead. Ontario’s colleges will play an essential role in strengthening the province’s economy and helping more people find rewarding careers

Based on information technology and the advent of the Internet’s changing role from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 which is transforming content, more specifically applied content, and the on-going fragmentation of the Internet, called the “splinternet.”

The increasing use of e-readers, smart phones and tablets has made accessing the Internet much more ubiquitous.  The growing importance of digital content as well as our virtual
platform to navigate the enormous amount of applied information being generated is a key trend driving the creation of the KnowQuest platform.

KnowQuest was created by a faculty member at Niagara College along with the input of students, librarians, and other faculty.  The platform allows users to maximize the hidden value of their college experience.
