Learning Environment Project Page
Dedicated to enhancing TRU's online learning and teaching environment.

Improving the learning and teaching experience includes consistency in the learning environment for our students and staff. Moodle has been determined to be the potential preferred institutional fit at this point as it is open source and already used on campus. We are currently in the information gathering stage and are starting from a values perspective and drilling down to required functionality to meet those values. Please add your comments, thoughts, opinions and suggestions to these pages to help us capture all possible requirements. If you want to say something but not in a public forum, please contact Tanya, Brian or Jacquey to have the conversation.
