Like many of you, we are watching in horror as peaceful calls for equality have been met with brutal attacks from police in the United States. As your instructors, we want you to know that these events affect us too and that if you are feeling overwhelmed or need to talk to someone, we are here, and we can also connect you with further support as needed.

Welcome to the course homepage for EDCI 335 at the University of Victoria!

EDCI 335 is a course designed to share the basics of Learning Design in a technology-mediated context and is offered as an elective in the Faculty of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the Educational Technology area.

This is an online course and can be completed without attending a face-to-face class session on campus. However, we will meet synchronously online in smaller groups, for conversations about the course, support, and building social relationships. Also, since this course site is open on the web (with a few things behind passwords for privacy), so anyone may follow along and participate as much as they desire.

This course site hosts multiple sections of EDCI 335, so be sure that you are following the correct schedule! For summer 2020 beginning in May, Colin Madland is teaching section A01(May 4 – July 31) and Heidi James is teaching section A02 (May 11 – June 26). You can find the specific schedule for your section under the ‘Sections’ menu at the top of each page.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your instructor.

For further information about the education technology program area courses and programs, including graduate studies, you may contact the educational technology area advisor, Dr. Valerie Irvine, at edtech at uvic dot ca.

We look forward to learning with you!
