Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council operates Good Learning Anywhere, the award winning e-channel program for distance learning.
Good Learning Anywhere (GLA) provides free online distance learning opportunities for adult learners in Ontario to assist them in upgrading their reading, writing, math, computer and other Essential Skills. Good Learning Anywhere works with Aboriginal communities, organizations and individuals to identify and meet their learning goals in our flexible online learning environment.
Good Learning Anywhere is part of the e-Channel initiative, an MAESD-funded initiative for online learning. Since 2003, this online program has helped thousands of learners from all over Ontario. Many of these learners live in remote communities such as Hurst and Attawapiskat.
Good Learning Anywhere offers 100+ LIVE courses and 5,000 hours of independent learning. These courses are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The Good Learning Anywhere staff offer online mentoring and support to hundreds of learners every year.
One of the most popular programs at GLA is the monthly Sharing Circle with inspiring guests. This is an easy way for learners to experience online learning and at the same time be encouraged to take a next step in the learning process.
“Sharing Circles encourages a mix of current and potential learners, and is a creative way to introduce Aboriginal culture and inspiring role models in the context of a learning environment.”
The SHLC is the proud recipient of the 2013 National Adult Literacy Database (NALD) Innovative Technology Award.
“We are thrilled to have been named the winner of the NALD Innovative Technology Award this year. GLA is striving to continue to remove barriers for adult literacy learners who are new to technology but also geographic barriers. Participants in the Sharing Circles from communities across Ontario are able to connect and interact with our motivating guests.” stated Jonathan Baum, executive director of Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council.
Good Learning Anywhere serves learners across Ontario including some of the most remote locations.
