Research on Distance Education for First Nations/aboriginals, from IRRODL, Vol. 15, No. 1
Tony Bates, online learning, distance edcuation resources, February 28, 2014

Tony Bates reviews an article from the latest issue of IRRODL (International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning) dealing with the impact of distance education on Firts Nations / Aboriginal communities in Canada. Bates notes, "This paper, written jointly by two First Nations people and two academics from the University of New Brunswick, is focused on distance education in a M’kmaw community in Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick). It is unusual as it seeks the views of 20 aboriginal students from the Elsipogtog First Nation in New Brunswick who have taken distance education courses."
