Online and technology-enabled learning continues to evolve and grow providing increasing access and opportunities for learners to pursue education in fl exible ways to meet their needs. In 2013, the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) committed $72 million over five years to support the development of eCampusOntario and the provision of high quality online learning experiences for Ontario’s postsecondary students.
eCampusOntario initiated the process to build its fi rst strategic plan in late Fall of 2015. After an open call for proposals, StrategyCorp was selected to guide planning activities. Foremost among these activities was a full schedule of consultations with eCampusOntario stakeholders. Multiple focus groups were hosted with students and with member institutions. In addition, surveys were sent to a large and diverse group of learners, as well as to every publicly assisted college and university in Ontario. A separate Faculty Supports Project collected feedback and input from faculty and online learning practitioners across the province.
The eCampusOntario Strategic Plan maps the direction for eCampusOntario to the end of March 2018. This document represents a summary of this plan
