The authors of this report say that Canada, because of its strong telecommunications infrastructure and widespread access to the Internet, is well positioned to reap the benefits of e-learning. However, despite this strong foundation, Canada is starting to slip behind several other countries in this sector.
The authors emphasize the need for a comprehensive e-learning plan for Canada and for a coordinated, collaborative approach by the many stakeholders in this sector. They note that by advancing learning technologies, Canada can maximize its human capital and foster a dynamic learning culture.
