ABSTRACT
Application form for funding for Ontario Colleges and Universities:

"Among the primary functions of the “Ontario Online” Centre of Excellence in technology-enabled learning is the offering of scalable, high-quality online courses by participating institutions that are broadly recognized for credit within each sector and across sectors where possible.

To support this activity, the Ministry has dedicated a one-time funding envelope of up to $8.5 million to the college and university sectors (as part of the $12 million dedicated in 2013-14 to the “Ontario Online” Initiative). The purpose of this fund is to allow participating institutions to develop or redesign a number of scalable, shared online courses that will eventually form part of a suite of flagship courses ready to be offered by participating institutions through “Ontario Online” by 2015-16. Some funding is also available for directly related activities and associated key projects (see Eligible Expenditures below)."
