Watch: AU’s new Integrated Learning Environment will transform learner experience
It’s the largest and most innovative digital transformation in Athabasca University’s (AU) history—one that opens doors to new possibilities for all learners and team members.
The Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) will combine all aspects of online learning and learner support into a single, integrated ecosystem that’s flexible, scalable, and based in the cloud. This means harmonizing AU’s future learning system, learner relations, data records, and academic and financial services with enhanced administrative processes and analytics.
“The ILE is really about rebuilding and re-envisioning our digital campus … as one integrated system and personalizing that learning experience,” says Anne-Marie Scott, deputy provost and co-lead of the ILE program, in a new video introducing the initiative.
Scott appears with numerous AU community members working together on the program, a group that includes learners, course designers, and professors.
When it launches, tentatively scheduled for late 2022, the ILE will be the engine that empowers learners and team members with the right tools and data, at the right time, to make learning, teaching, and administration more streamlined, collaborative, engaging, and interactive.
