E-learning in Canada
MetadataShow full item record
Any view of elearning in Canada must be informed by the uniquely Canadian feature of provincial jurisdiction over education. Canada is the only country that does not have a national department/ministry of education. Therefore any investigation of elearning in Canada must focus more on specific provincial initiatives in technologically enhanced learning rather than a Canadian overview. A distinctive “Canadian” model cannot exist (unless one views disparate models as evidence of a uniquely Canadian archetype!). The provinciality of Canadian elearning serves to highlight the inability of Canada to sustain national strategies and focus such as implemented in many other countries due to the fractious nature of federal/provincial relations particularly in education.
