Curious about Courseware?

What is courseware?  More specifically, what is LINC courseware? I am starting Stage One of the LearnIt2Teach program and am hoping to use the LINC courseware with my students in the future.  I still have not seen a live sample of LINC courseware.

If you want to experience “basic” LINC courseware surf to http://edulinc.ca/login/index.php, create an account and explore.  edulinc is an Open resource that also hosts many of the core LINC courseware elements.

Also, Edulinc.ca is enabled for mobile learning.  Click here for more information.

Stage 3 Digital Participant’s Manual Link

The Stage 3 participant’s manual now available at the Stage 3 course or from our portal.  Click on this image to download.

The manual is a PDF version of the all of the elements covered in the Stage Three course.  It is available for those who wish to print out the complete set of of instructions to be available as they progress through the Stage 3 course.

Edlinc Diaries session recorded

Edlinc Diaries sessions at TESL Ontario provided the instructor’s’ perspective on the LINC courseware and how they have adapted the LINC courseware for their LINC teaching purposes. The session was recorded thanks to TESL Ontario.  When it is released the link will be available here.

Thank you!

Our team would like to thank the organisers of the annual TESL Ontario conference for the excellent conference.  We would also like to thank Citizenship and Immigration Canada for their continuing support.  As well we would like to thank all of the conference delegates who attended our sessions and engaged with us at our table and the informal get together late Thursday afternoon.   Your opinions, ideas and contributions are invaluable to the progress and success of this project!  We hope to steadily grow and improve our offerings to make your language teaching experience more efficient and effective.

LINC Administrator’s Survey

At the TESL Ontario conference, LINC Administrator’s were invited to complete a survey  to help our team integrate LINC administrator’s ideas and opinions into our LINC administrator manual and digital resources to be released in April of 2012.    This survey is now closed, thank you for your contribution.

This video looks at technologies used in language training and how they have impacted an ESL teacher.  Check out the LearnIT2Teach YouTube Channel.

Come meet us at TESL Ontario!

This Thursday at 4-5 p.m. at the TESL Ontario Conference, we will be in Conference Room H.  This is an opportunity for us to reconnect or connect with instructors who are using LINC courseware or are in the LearnIt2Teach Stages. We are sure there will be lots of questions.  Click on the image to the right see a larger version of the poster.
