COVID-19: Accessing ADLC Resources

With the emergence of COVID-19, we would like to remind you that we provide free access to course resources to all schools in the province. View full details

The Alberta Distance Learning Centre has been supporting Alberta’s students since 1923. Our services are especially valuable in challenging times. We are eager to share with you how ADLC is continuing to provide support.

As principal of ADLC, I know how valuable our services can be to your teachers and students. The critical item to note here is that our services are available to you at no cost! 

ADLC Resources Support Your Teachers in Your School

ADLC’s high-quality resources are fully aligned with the Alberta Programs of Study.

Alberta teachers with highly diverse or complex classrooms can access ADLC resources, which are essentially our courses less the ADLC teacher, to support the local teacher’s instruction. 

ADLC’s curriculum aligned resources can help new teachers whose assignments include remnants of the school’s timetable. We provide support for planning, instruction and assessment. 

We know that many teachers, school counselors, and administrators are burning the candle at both ends to support your students as best you can. It can seem like survival mode. 

Our resources can help teachers thrive, not just survive.

We are here to help 

Here are some examples of how we can help support a wider range of needs, while keeping the standards high to challenge the potential of the students in your class. ADLC’s service mandate can assist:

  • teachers with English Language Learners who are new to the country 
  • teachers who have students who have fallen behind academically
  • teachers with split or multi-grade classrooms
  • new teachers needing help with lesson planning
  • teachers who are looking for subject-area expertise as a means to develop their capacity to be highly effective 
  • schools as they look to broader elective programming 
  • teachers who have students with extended absences, such as hospital stays or long trips

Our resources are here to help your teachers provide rich and meaningful learning experiences.

ADLC Provides Instruction for Your Students at No Cost. Our services are free!

In some cases, it makes sense for ADLC to provide instruction for your students. This is available to you at no cost. The reasons for having ADLC teachers provide instruction are much the same as when your own teachers use our resources in the classroom. However, when we provide the instruction, you can leave everything up to us. The student remains yours, but we handle the instruction, assessment, and reporting to Alberta Education. 

As your student body becomes more diverse, know that we can support your students needs. This might free your classroom teacher up to address their most urgent needs. Or, perhaps, you might have students who demonstrate the maturity and independence to work at their own pace, whether it’s faster or slower than your semestered classes. Alternatively, you can operate  an independent, supervised study space, or have students work in the Learning Commons. Students can even work outside of regular school hours. 

Our affiliations regularly report back tremendous success for their students in broadening and enriching their school programs. 

Give us a call!

We are funded by Alberta Education to support Alberta schools and their students. As you continue to strive to provide rich and meaningful learning opportunities in your school, we urge you to consider leveraging ADLC services. We can elevate you toward your goals. We don’t sell our services but we have lots to give. 

Give us a call or schedule a school-site visit to show you firsthand how we can help.
