COVID-19 and remote learning

Highlighting this resource from the AlphaPlus LBS site:

If you are wondering if your students and learners are ready for online learning, you can use this questionnaire as a template to find out. Sandra Martinez from Centennial College LBS kindly shared this with us so that we could share it with you.

We are not suggesting that LBS programs in Ontario start distance learning programs (eChannel is doing this and is accepting new learners) and but these collections may have some good information for programs temporarily connecting remotely with learners. If you find a resource here that is particularly useful to you, get in touch and let us know how you are using it so we can highlight it here.

COVID-19: New website provides resources for LBS programs

Our friends at AlphaPlus have been hard at work over the past couple of days pulling together resources for LBS. They have created a website to support you and your program that includes:

  • General announcements and updates from the government and LBS programs
  • Links to information about COVID-19
  • Tips and tools to support working from home – ideas for connecting online and via mobile apps, setting up online courses, sharing and managing content, even sending out texts from computer 
  • Resources for learners to help them access online learning resources while they don’t have access to on-site programs.

You can find the site here: https://sites.google.com/alphaplus.ca/covid/
