We have a three year licence with the right to extend for an additional two years. Students and teachers have full access starting on September 1, 2010. Boards may contact Learn360 to begin testing and loading teachers and students and to deal with local issues and needs.
The Learn360 service offers materials selected to provide targeted curriculum support from a variety of educational video producers such as TVO, Nelvana, PBS, National Geographic, Standard Deviants, Slim Goodbody, Sunburst Media, and others. The service includes thousands of educational videos, video clips, newsreels, audio and video files, and still images. All of the full-length videos and video clips are aligned to Provincial standards.
New for 2010:
- Over 7,600 full videos
- Announcements section
- Users can create multi-page assignments
- Bulk upload classes
Administrators can push content directly to users or classes
New content is added on a regular basis as Learn360 develops or licenses new materials. Each video is available in three formats for viewing and downloading: Flash, Windows Media, and QuickTime. Still images are offered in .jpg format; audio files are in MP3 format. The internet-delivered content can be offered on LAN (local area network) or WAN (wide area network) systems. Users can add links to their own content
in any digital or audio format. Districts or schools can customize their Learn360 site to provide access to additional previously owned media. Provincial standards correlations can be added to the Learn360 database.
The service provides flexible administrative features and Flash tutorials on Learn360™s components and functions. Toll-free telephone technical support is available every business day from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Eastern Time.
