The massive open online course (MOOC) on Introduction to Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL), offered jointly by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and Athabasca University, has attracted 3,926 participants from 94 countries. Of these participants, about 40% were female teachers and the highest number of registrations were from Bangladesh, Barbados, Canada, India, Mauritius, Rwanda and South Africa.
The MOOC covered issues related to integrating technology in teaching and learning at secondary education, post-secondary education and vocational education. This five-week course required approximately three to five hours of time per week from the participants and offered flexible options for learning the content to accommodate busy schedules. The course equipped learners with the knowledge to use appropriate technologies and online resources, including open educational resources (OER) for improving student learning.
