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.

Goals & Objectives

    2. Supported (technical end user support? or...)
    3. Open
    4. Applied
    5. Flexible
    6. Research and data-driven
  3. Is cost effective, sustainable and supports continuous improvement while encouraging back end efficiencies
  4. Is implemented using a process that supports the needs of staff and faculty through appropriate process development, training and ongoing support

Based on the emerging themes there are a couple of debatable topics that appear to have emerged. Hoping you will state your arguments for one or the other and help keep the conversation going via a little healthy debate.

Open vs. Closed

Using familiar tools vs. Learning new (useful) tools

Interaction with others vs. Completely independent

Deadlines vs. No deadlines
