"eLearning is a broad concept. It ranges from minimal use of technology in an otherwise traditional classroom through to complete online/remote delivery of a course.” For information about the university common language for eLearning, examples of good practices, resources internal and external to York please go to the Teaching commons website.
elearning is not to be confused with eClass. eClass is the new name for York University’s course management system (formally known as Moodle). Much of the information you learned about Moodle is applicable to eClass. For more information about eClass see the Y-file story at https://bit.ly/34Q5XZE. A FAQ page is now available at https://uit.yorku.ca/eclass. If any Faculty members have questions about eclass, then they are encouraged to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call 416-736-2100 x30077.
We in the Faculty of Health also have a set of resources to facilitate your technology enhanced learning, to find out more about our elearning specialist, how the team at learning technology services can help you, click on the buttons below.
