Learning Technologies

CTET Newsflash! We are updating to a new version of Moodle on June 27, 2017. Take a sneak peek by visiting our New Moodle info site here.

Royal Roads University uses a variety of learning technologies to support online and on-campus courses. The CTET team collaborates with faculty and program staff to assure technology is successfully embedded into both the course design process and the teaching process.

Our philosopy of learning technologies is that technology needs to work, for the studentThe LMS (Moodle) provides students reliable online access to information and course materials, and is focused on "what's expected, what's happening NOW, in my course". As for learning activities which engage and support knowledge-building, innovation and transformation, the sky is the limit. CTET works towards supporting instructors and students in using tools for creativity, innovation, reflective practice, and community-building.  Browse our growing list of "Cool Tools" to get ideas for your next assignment or activity.

CTET follows the Horizon Report and other educational technology thought-leadership, as a means of charting implementation, adoption and diffusion of learning technologies. We encourage experimenting and doing, beyond the LMS. It is all about Reclaiming Innovation! in higher education.

Information about how to use Moodle, and other locally-supported technologies, can be found in the RRU Knowledge Base (remember to login!).
