January 6, 2016

In the spirit of new year’s resolutions, Contact North | Contact Nord has released its “wish list” of ten developments it hopes to see in online learning in 2016. The list includes calls for better data collection and expanded access to broadband for all Canadians. It also highlights outreach to Indigenous populations and previously disadvantaged groups as a top priority, citing online learning as an effective means to reach a variety of people. The wish list recognizes and commends the movement toward new funding models that can enhance online learning and effective assessment. The organization says its goals could “stimulate real change and development for learners and enable learning providers to accelerate their journey towards transformation.” Contact North | Contact Nord
