So it’s now official. Teleducation NB will be closing its doors next month. TeleEd NB has been my partner and client over the past six years. TeleEd NB predates the WWW, and has been involved in a lot of elearning initiatives, including the evaluation of LMS’s and production of the After Five newsletter.
TeleEducation NB’s mission is to provide to the New Brunswick government, education and training institutions, and private sector companies leadership, direction and expertise in the practical application and integration of new instructional methods and learning technologies.
TeleEducation NB facilitates flexible access to quality education and training by promoting the integration of e-learning in the education and training systems, thereby contributing to increased education levels and the prosperity of the citizens of New Brunswick.
Over the years, some people have voiced criticism of TeleEd, as a government agency performing functions that others might do as well. Well folks, it’s time to step up to the plate. LearnNB might do the job, but it is in its infancy. Take a look at the TeleEd site and the After Five newsletter, and see if there’s something that you or your organisation might be able carry on. It’s up to us.
Finally, I would like to thank all of the people who have worked so hard at TeleEd. You helped to put New Brunswick on the global e-learning map.
