Digital Overdrive has been publishing student and teacher resources since 1997.  That is a very long time.  Our first resource was a coil bound, photocopied manual that was created to give teachers a reliable source of information for this new high school subject area.

The author, Dale Andrews BA, BEd., was teaching Communications Technology and quickly became an educational authority on the subject.  Over the years, the resource grew and became very popular across Canada.  In 2004, Dale took the resource to a new level by creating the first interactive eTextbook to successfully make it into the high school market.  In fact, Follett Educational, the largest eBook distributor in North America at the time invited Dale to Chicago to showcase his work in the field to company vice presidents from across the United States.  After the full day meeting, Follett declared that this small company from Canada was the leader in interactive eTextbook design.

Needless to say, Digital Overdrive Interactive exploded on the high school educational market and became the premiere tool for teaching in the Communications field.  What makes the series so successful is the fact that the resource is created from an educational and professional point of view.  With over 24 years of professional production experience and counting, Dale has been able to combine his leadership in education with his technological knowledge to create a product that has been recognized internationally for its excellence.
