Welcome to the eLearning Portal page at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Visit the Teaching and Learning Centre for more information about support for the eLearning systems at Emily Carr. Please click on the arrows in the grey areas below to see more information.
Three principal systems used for both online and face to face curriculum delivery at Emily Carr are, the Moodle course management system (CMS), the WordPress Blogging system and the Wiki system.
|Moodle Courses||Emily Carr's Blogs||Emily Carr's Wiki|
Emily Carr's "Courses" Moodle site is a course management system (CMS) that allows faculty to post course content, communicate with students, set up quizzes or surveys and manage grades online.
Emily Carr's Blogs use the WordPress software and are available for departments, courses, faculty and research Initiatives. At this time we do not provide student blogs.
Emily Carr's Wiki is used by Emily Carr students, staff, faculty and collaborators to create resources, courses, documentation or research spaces.
What are ELearning Models at ECUAD?
We believe that there are specific strategies for effective online pedagogy and student engagement. These include effective course design that offers resource-rich materials while maintaining sustained and effective student interaction. We embrace new learning models especially as they afford a space for experimentation within emergent systems of teaching and learning. Indeed traditional face-to-face classroom teaching acknowledges and takes advantage of online tools.
Fully Online Models
Defined by asynchronous course delivery, fully online courses offer all curriculum, course material and assignments through Moodle as well as ECU blogs and wikis. Student interaction with instructors and peers take place through these platforms as well as video conferencing, email, forums discussions and chat rooms. Fully online models increase opportunities for distant BC and global communities and for those with limited physical access. They also offer flexibility for students completing internships, working, travelling or pursuing education opportunities on other campuses.
Blended Learning Models
Blended learning models take advantage of both online and face-to-face pedagogical practices. A blended model frees up time, energy and resources by offering flexibility for students and instructors while retaining regular face-to-face engagement. Blended models bring together live lecture, discussions, critiques, work shopping, etc which are complemented with online assigned reading materials, links to relevant websites, forum discussions, etc.
