York University’s Student Papers & Academic Research Kit (SPARK), eLearning designed and produced by The Knowledge Transfer Company (TKTC) Inc., receives the Ontario College and University Library Association’s Award for Special Achievement.
"The Knowledge Transfer Company acted as our guide through the eLearning design and development process of SPARK. Our group representing three university departments and multiple stakeholders worked collaboratively with The Knowledge Transfer Company on a needs assessment followed by a highly effective development strategy and sound instructional and graphic design for a series of eLearning modules that matched our targeted learner groups. Knowledge Transfer brings the necessary knowledge, skills and experience required to create an award winning learning tool; one that York University is proud to showcase."
Project Lead, York University, 2014

SPARK is 13 modules weaving together the processes of research, writing and learning skills, and provides access to over 37 printable supporting resources. All content is covered under a Creative Commons license and because it is housed on the Internet, is available for other higher education institutions and faculty.
