Brock University has announced plans to develop content for new online courses with the support of nearly $430K in funding from the Ontario government. $330K of the funds will be used to create an online four-year bachelor’s degree program in Adult Education, while roughly $100K will support the development of open course modules associated with the University’s Environmental Sustainability in Practice course in the Environment Sustainability Research Centre. “It makes a direct contribution to the University’s strategic goals when it comes to online learning,” said Associate Professor Camille Rutherford in the Department of Teacher Education, who added that new courses will be developed over the coming year in partnership with Niagara College.
