We are sharing this because the lead researchers for the State of the Nation: K-12 e-Learning in Canada annual report, Randy LaBonte and Michael Barbour, wrote a chapter on “An Overview of eLearning Organizations and Practices in Canada.”  The abstract for the chapter reads:

This chapter provides an overview of the state of K-12 online, blended and distance education, or e-learning, in Canada. A summary of the history of K-12 e-learning and research is provided along with enrolment, current policy and legislation. A description of programs is provided along with an overview of practitioner-based organizations and consortia that have evolved to support e-learning programs in the country. A discussion of issues in K-12 e-learning and research are included and the chapter’s conclusion calls for more research and sharing of innovative practices emerging in Canada.

The chapter is Chapter 43 and begins on page 601.  Again, the complete book is available at:
