The launch of the TOOC (Truly Open Online Course) at the University of Saskatchewan

Posted on January 2nd, 2014

The University of Saskatchewan will launch its first open online course, Introduction to Learning Technologies, on January 21, 2014. The course was developed by the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness for faculty and instructors who wish to learn more about effective uses of learning technologies. Participants will explore pedagogically informed learning technologies, in addition to considering the implications of copyright and Creative Commons (CC), digital citizenship, and digital literacy for their teaching practice. The course is described as being truly open–it is being offered on an open platform and all resources will be available for perpetual reuse under CC licenses.
