ADLC is restructuring to serve schools and students better.
Can our students still use ADLC to complete courses?
Yes, ADLC continues to provide Student Instruction services to school aged Alberta students with online and print course options from grades 1-12.
Can teachers still use ADLC resources?
Yes, teachers in Alberta School Authorities can continue to use ADLC materials through Teacher Support.
What is changing at ADLC?
- All student registrations will come through your School Authority to ADLC. No registrations will be accepted directly from students.
- Registrations must be processed in the Student Information System (SIS). Current school facilitators (super-users) will be familiar with this process. You can learn how – access video and PDF resources on our SIS Training Resources page.
- The Course Catalogue and other parts of the ADLC Website will be streamlined. Please bear with us as we make these changes.
- The catalogue in the student information system (SIS) will be the most up to date. We will not be updating the website version. It will be dismantled in favor of the catalogue in the SIS.
- Students will have until the end of June to complete courses. It will be the responsibility of the student’s School and or School Authority to support and manage students’ work. ADLC teachers will work with your school facilitators to help students complete courses.
- Students will be required to submit work more frequently as a course progresses.
- Individual extensions may be possible, if conditions warrant.
- Specific ADLC teachers will be assigned to your students. The same teacher will be responsible for the course content, marking of assessments, and interaction with students.
- ADLC has increased the number of teachers to support students.
- ADLC has moved operations to Barrhead so our teachers can collaborate to serve you better.
- ADLC teachers’ class sizes will be limited so they can meet your students’ needs.
- ADLC support staff is being trained to provide schools with the support you and your students need. Tell us what you need and we will help!
Why are these changes happening?
Alberta Education is funding ADLC to support Alberta schools to
- provide online and print courses taught by ADLC teachers to your students
- provide course content to Alberta teachers to use in your classrooms
There are no fees for instruction. Some courses require the purchase of materials.
Our goal is the same as yours. We strive toward the same Outcomes:
- Alberta’s Students are successful.
- Alberta’s education system supports First Nations, Métis and Inuit students’ Success.
- Alberta’s education system respects diversity and promotes inclusion.
- Alberta has excellent teachers, school and school authority leaders.
- The education system is well governed and managed.
