E-Learning Project From Back Home

Just wanted to point out a big e-learning project from my own home province - The Killick Project. This is a project housed at Memorial University of Newfoundland that is funded by the federal Government through the the Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) Program of the the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).

If you look at the individual projects, there are a number that involve the virtual school in Newfoundland and Labrador, including:
  • Effectiveness of New Learning Technologies in Providing Education to Rural and Isolated Communities
  • Innovative and Effective Practives in Online Learning
  • Participation of High School Students in the Isolated Aboriginal Communities of Coastal Labrador in Web-delivered Learning
  • The Impact of CDLI Course Participation on Student Transition into Post-secondary Education and/or the Workforce
I mention this project at this time because there is a recent addition to YouTube that this project has contributed. While I have only watched the first few second, this video is of Dr. Elizabeth Murphy (who is leading the "Innovative and Effective Practices in Online Learning" individual project") talking about learner-centered e-teaching. You can view that video by clicking here.
