UofT’s New Learning Portal Drop-in Testing Session

UofT’s New Learning Portal Drop-in Testing Session – Feedback Needed

U of T’s current Learning Portal hasn’t changed much in the last decade. Feedback from the University community is that the web interface for the Portal is clunky and out of date, and it doesn’t flow the way people would like. It’s also hard for instructors to incorporate new tools into their teaching.

The University is calling on the student community to help test three new systems that could serve as the engine for it’s new Learning Portal. In order to ensure that this system works with adaptive technologies that are used by students, the Academic Toolbox Renewal Group and Students for Barrier-free Access are co-hosting a drop-in testing session at the SBA Accessible Computer Lab. Please join us and share your feedback online, or in person with the SBA Centre Coordinators.

Date: Wednesday November 16th, 2016

Time: 11:30am-2:30pm

(this is an open drop-in so please come by anytime during this period that works for you)

Location: SBA Centre, 215 Huron Street, Suite 924 on the 9th floor
