ON invests $2.6M to improve online, technology-enabled learning

March 16, 2017

Ontario has announced that it will invest $2.6M to help project teams across the province develop new and innovative approaches to online and technology-enabled learning. 45 recipients from universities and colleges across Ontario will receive a broad range of research and innovation grants through eCampusOntario to explore technology-enabled learning and highlight best practices in student engagement. Examples of funded projects include a study of the use of gaming as a teaching method in science-based fields; evaluation of the impact of virtual simulations as a means to prepare nursing students for clinical practice; and the creation of an online space for Indigenous students to virtually gather, record and engage in stories from local Elders.
