Using AlphaRoute in Rural Northern Ontario Communities Not Served by Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) Delivery Agencies (2001)

Final Report

This is the final report on a research project that assessed the use of online delivery system called "AlphaRoute" to offer literacy training to adults in remote communities. The objective of this project was to make the opportunity for literacy training available to adults who do not live in a community with established literacy and basic skills delivery agencies. During this project learners were provided the AlphaRoute experience and connected to literacy and basic skills agencies in another community at a distance.

For this project two goals were outlined to determine two main components of successful distance delivery of AlphaRoutes: 1. Learners’ ability to make progress in literacy learning through an extended (distance) delivery model; and 2. The ways in which rural and remote literacy communities could adapt materials and provide support to learners at a distance.

This report includes the following sections:
- executive summary
- introduction
- research methods
- project results - literacy progress; support and adaptation; cost benefits.
- conclusion - project limitations and implications
- recommendations
