Whether one is developing new curriculum or working with existing curriculum, there are several "givens" that influence and shape the curriculum decisions that can be made. One of these givens is the resources that are available. While resources (or lack of them) should not block creative curriculum building, it is important to consider the impact of curriculum decisions on available financial, human and physical resources.

Available technology can also have a strong influence on the way that learning experiences are designed and curriculum is delivered. Webcasting, videoconferencing, podcasting, learning management systems and other technologies make it possible to extend learning beyond classroom walls and/or to enrich in-class learning experiences.

Most colleges support a specific learning management system.

Algonquin and Loyalist Colleges use Blackboard.

More information about Blackboard and its use at Algonquin.

At Loyalist more information and help using Blackboard and other technologies available there can be obtained by visiting the "E-Learning Hive".
