International e-learning strategies: Key findings relevant to the Canadian context (2006)

This study, prepared for the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), has two main purposes: to examine major international initiatives in the field of e-learning; and to suggest a possible framework for a Canadian e-learning strategy.

The authors examine approaches to the development and implementation of e-learning in selected countries and organizations, highlighting existing policies and initiatives, and offering insights for CCL's work on e-learning in Canada.

They conclude that while Canada has played a leadership role in e-learning in the past through initiatives involving infrastructure deployment, learning methodology, and accessibility, that leading edge has eroded and Canada is starting to trail behind in these sectors.

An e-learning strategy is urgently needed, along with a coordinating body that would respect the provinces’ jurisdiction in education while, at the same time, mobilizing federal government agencies and other stakeholders towards clear, sustainable plans to support a skills development agenda for the knowledge-based economy.
