"Kyle is a very knowledgeable, skilled and innovative eLearning course developer. His respectful, consultative style, attention to detail, and timely completion of high quality work make him a joy to work with, but what I have valued most in working with Kyle is his primary focus on ensuring that the online courses we create provide great learning experiences for our students."
- Dr. Mary Wilson. Director, Centre for Academic Excellence, Niagara College.

- Michael Amick, Dean of Computer Technology and Online Learning, Central Lakes College, MN
"Kyle is highly competent and knowledgeable. He worked diligently and proactively to help Carleton University get a much better understanding of a complex learning management system. Through his guidance he helped move Carleton forward much more quickly than if we had used other resources. Kyle came prepared, was very enthusiastic and adaptable. I highly recommend him."
- Patrick Lyons. Director, Instructional Technologies, Carleton University.
"Kyle is a great resource for all things e-learning. In addition to his knowledge of courseware management systems (e.g. Desire2Learn, Blackboard, etc.), he is an evangelist for applying social media in teaching and learning environments."
- M.J. D'Elia. Head (Acting), Learning and Curriculum Support, University of Guelph
"Kyle has been a tireless advocate for persons with disabilities in his work with me on making Desire2Learn a more accessible learning management system. I have both presented with him and have watched him present compellingly on usability and accessibility in educational technology. Plus, he’s just a really smart and charming guy, with a decided knack for getting very quickly and clearly to the heart of the matter—a savvy mix of user advocate and tech evangelist."
- Ken Petri. Director, Web Accessibility Center, Ohio State University.
"I would absolutely recommend Kyle Mackie. I have had the pleasure of working with Kyle for close to 10 years in our various roles at the University. As I reflect on his contributions to the University I am left awestruck at how his efforts have dramatically shaped and revolutionized both the courses and the technology used in courses at the University of Guelph in a rare blend of talents that allow him to challenge both the way we teach and the way students learn."
