The GO Project: Getting Online

The GO Project was a cross-Canadian project undertaken by researchers from Alberta, BC, Ontario, and Newfoundland and Labrador, funded by the national Office of Literacy and Learning (Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program of the Government of Canada). It examined and presented an overview of trends and issues in online learning by literacy practitioners in Canada, as well as a more general review of online learning within government-sponsored programs, not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions.

Practitioners may find the Resources section of the site to be of interest, particularly the newsletters and research reports which were produced by the project:
