Alberta-North Research Community

Alberta-North is a community of communities. As an organization it unites those who are providing distance education opportunities to the remote and northern communities in Alberta, the Yukon and The Northwest Territories. Alberta-North facilitates the creation of Community Access Points in some 89 remote communities - providing internet access for distacne learners. AB-North recently adopted a Research Mandate to promote collaborative research on distance learning and on the organizations that provide it - i,e, it looks at both "institutional research" and "learning research". At the September meeting, Dr. Griff Richards was elected the Chair of the AB-North Research Committee, and Roger Nason of Keyano College, the Vice-Chair. These will be interesting times indeed.
