Calgary Instructors Video to Remote Classrooms with Local Facilitators

Part-time non-credit learning for adults

Community Learning Network

"The Community Learning Network provides ...leadership, resources and connections through partnerships and collaboration.

"Community Adult Learning Councils address the part-time, non-credit learning needs of adults within specified geographic boundaries.  Currently 80 in number,"

From Bow Valley Learning Council Success Story for September 2010:"A pilot series of video conferencing is about to run ‘Bridges for Rural Immigrants’ and this is being developed and delivered in partnership with Bow Valley College and the Hanna Learning Centre. The pilot project tests the development and delivery of English language programs to rural and remote areas using a videoconferencing platform and the SuperNet/Internet. The goal is to establish a community based partnership and a delivery model that is transferable to rural or remote areas with compatible technological supports. The project addresses local and regional needs related to access to learning, low class numbers, lack of transport, lack of LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) funding for participants and high course fees.
