Educational Technology

The Centre for Teaching and Learning Supports a number of different initiatives and technologies used across campus.

Here you will find information on:

onQ - Queen's Learning Management System

onQ is the Queen's specific name for the Learning Management System(LMS) which replaced Moodle. The LMS, Brightspace, was developed by Desire2Learn (D2L). The system osffer more options and a more robust learning management system. Queen's is hoping that this new system will be even more widely used by the Queen's community than Moodle was as it can be used as a supplement to traditional methods of teaching and to support blended or online learning modules.

Lecture Capture

In 2008 The Virtualization Task Force was charged with examining the potential for use of information technology and electronic media in reducing costs of instruction, alleviating space constraints associated with growing enrolment, and enhancing the quality of the teaching and learning environment at Queen's. The term virtualization was chosen to be intentionally broad in scope, in order to capture all facets of the use of media and information technologies as they are used in the teaching and learning environment, both inside and outside the classroom. In the short term, it was recognized that there was a need to experiment with a variety of teaching models and that this experimentation would require the cooperation of experts in teaching and learning, technology, and specific disciplines. As part of this examination a system was developed which allowed for automatic capturing and uploading to a streaming server of live lectures within a large lecture hall.
