Online Learning Update

A report on online learning from the University of Ottawa

Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:02 am


U of Ottawa already has five programs and 76 courses that are available online, and is planning to have at least 20% of all sections in a hybrid mode (50% face-to-face and 50% online) by 2020. Although the Board felt this target was too timid, a feature of the plan is to ensure all faculty are properly trained and supported before they start developing hybrid courses. One advantage that the U of Ottawa has is that it has already in place a strong Centre for Mediated Teaching and Learning which includes a Centre for e-Learning, which means it can move more quickly to greater hybrid and online learning.
