Save the date! Moodle training coming this October

The focus of this new training will be on how to deliver an existing Moodle course.

This October, we will offer a new Moodle training course to interested educators. This self-managed training will present trainees with a set of tasks to complete, a selection of Moodle courses to deliver to learners and various opportunities to earn digital badges along the way.

Assisting agencies with Information Technology Planning

This year, our staff will work directly with 16 already selected agencies.

Building on agency consultations undertaken in 2013/14, and with the support of the MTCU, we are launching an agency-level IT planning and coaching service designed to help programs create and manage their IT plans.

Augmented Reality software and Apps use images as “triggers” to launch a video, website, an App or other type of content.

Augmented Reality encourages “discovery-based” learning, improves comprehension and increases motivation for learning. It also utilizes multiple learning styles: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Are you wondering how you can integrate Augmented Reality into your classroom?

E-Bulletins

NEW! E-Learning on the Goal Paths
Our latest e-bulletin, titled E-Learning on the Goal Paths, is focused on activities that instructors and learners can use to find information about each of the goal paths, and to work on digital skills and building computer self-efficacy. We know, that finding resources from which instructors can build digital learning and practice activities in each of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) goal paths can be very time-consuming. To help you save some time we have used a Live Binder – essentially a “three-ring binder on the web” – that functions as a web-based repository of live links that we have organized by goal path.

Featured technology

Augmented Reality
According to Wikipedia, Augmented Reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. With the help of advanced AR technology, artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world, making the information about the surrounding real world of the user interactive and easy to digitally manipulate.
