Reflection on IOL by educators:
Anna Gonzalez, Director of Instructional Technology, University of the Incarnate World in San Antonio, TX
“It’s a fantastic learning opportunity. IOL has been a great organization to work with. You get to meet different people, learn from them, exchange ideas and apply them in different ways.”

Oscar Delgado, Instructional Technologist, The University of Texas at El Paso
“IOL helps you make collaborations of all kinds: social as well as business. IOL helped me project my idea before educators and create interest in my project. Thanks to it, my business is growing.”
