eCampusOntario Open Casebook
Expression of Interest (EOI)
eCampusOntario is seeking expressions of interest from member institutions for case contributions regarding the use of Lynda.com. All successful submissions will be collected into an open casebook for publication. Interested members must submit by November 29.
In 2017, the Government of Ontario purchased a blanket, three-year license to Lynda.com to provide postsecondary students with free access to the skills-focused, online learning platform. The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) and eCampusOntario have since partnered to evaluate this investment with a focus on understanding whether and how Lynda.com can help address perceived skills gaps among Ontario college and university students.
By creating and publishing an open casebook eCampusOntario acknowledges the breadth of its members’ innovative teaching and learning strategies and creates opportunities to engage in small-scale study and assessment of these projects. To showcase a diverse set of cases that reflect the use of Lynda.com, the casebook will include selections from new Lynda.com adopters as well as seasoned users at universities and colleges.
Successful applicants will be paid a fee of $5,000 upon completion and submission of the case to eCampusOntario.
