Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Learning Objects

What are they?

Learning objects are small units of learning that usually require interaction. When students manipulate parts of the object, their understanding of the concept increases. We have designed all sorts of different learning objects in the past from interactive case studies, to tools to build chemistry solutions.  If you have the content, our multimedia developers can help build a multimedia solution.  We curently use Adobe Captivate to build our learning objects.

Why would I use it?

Learning objects allow students to interact with content in a self-paced learning environment. They can be an engaging and interactive method of learning while incorporating instant feedback to aid in the learning process.

How do I get started?

Conceptualize the topic or specific lesson you would like to have a learning object created for to support student learning. Fill out a project initiation form with your concept in order to begin the collaboration process with the TLC.

Depending on the amount of shots, graphics, and locations needed, the more time it will take to complete the project. If you prefer to plan a video, and have the multimedia team work on it for you, you will need to submit a project initiation form.  


How long will it take?

The delivery times for learning objects can vary depending on the scope of the project. The average learning object production time from initial meeting to implementation would be 3 weeks. However, more complicated projects could take longer.
