ONLINE AND DISTANCE EDUCATION CAPACITY OF CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES
The goal of this research: investigate Canada’s positionand capacity in digital and online education.
In this expanding segment of the education market, it is difficult to estimate the position of the Canadian offering, as there has been no systematic review or analysis covering the Canadian offering. There are a few anecdotal accounts about the online venture of some Canadian post-secondary institutions, but no real research looking into the general Canadian offering in online/distance education and the potential strategies used by Canadian institutions. This could become an important issue for the positioning of Canadian education as institutions focus on the lucrative international student market.
