Online Learning with eLearning Consortium Canada (ELCC)
The eLearning Consortium Canada (ELCC) is a unique cooperative not-for-profit organization of member schools mandated to deliver quality online curriculum for the benefit of students in member independent schools. ELCC develops exceptional eLearning experiences for students using the best teaching and learning practices that exist in our independent schools. The unique Consortium model, of schools working together collaboratively, provides an enhanced online experience using a development and delivery model that has consistently proven to be successful and sustainable.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIS Ontario partnered with eLearning Consortium Canada (ELCC) to provide our members professional development opportunities to aid in their transition to teaching online. The resulting 'eLearning Crash course, along with ongoing Teaching and Learning sessions in the evenings, reached 41 schools and over 450 teachers.
CIS Ontario members can access the Teaching & Learning session recordings below, when logged in. If you are a member of a CIS Ontario school but do not have a login to the member portal please contact Sheri Little at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OCT Additional Qualification course (AQ) course, Teaching and Learning through eLearning, is being offered July 6 to August 14, 2020 by Ontario Tech University (formerly UOIT) and taught by Dan Strutt, Director of eLearning Consortium Canada. The course will focus on planning for the possible models to be implemented by CIS Ontario schools in September, and developing online content with support, guidance and feedback.
