Welcome to campusmanitoba.ca! We’ve built this website to showcase the projects and services we’ve developed over the last year and will continue supporting in the future. Since 2014, Campus Manitoba has supported students studying online through eCampus Manitoba, which is being relaunched later this spring as eCourses Manitoba. eCourses is one of our four major projects getting a facelift, including Set Your Course, OpenEd MB, and Transfer MB.
Visiting our new home on the web is an easy way to explore all our ventures and stay up to speed with everything we’re doing to help move education forward in Manitoba. Along with the website, we’re rolling out new visual identities to represent Campus Manitoba and our projects.
Expanding access to education
In addition to supporting online education, we’ve expanded in the last year to include our work in open educational resources, transfer credit, and careers in Manitoba. In September of 2015, we launched the Manitoba Open Textbook Initiative to promote the use of open educational resources at Manitoba’s universities and colleges. The project is now under the new OpenEd MB umbrella, which will include all efforts to enhance teaching and learning through the use of open educational resources.
Beyond our work in OER, Campus Manitoba oversees additional projects that support post-secondary education in the province. In January of 2016, we launched Set Your Course, an online resource showcasing careers and educational pathways right here in Manitoba. We’re also looking forward to launching Transfer Manitoba in the near future, a website that will show how course credits move between Manitoba’s universities and colleges.
A culture of collaboration
Through our projects and services, Campus Manitoba encourages collaboration among Manitoba’s public post-secondary institutions. Like our partners, we advocate for more accessible education and believe in doing whatever we can to help all students succeed.
This website will serve as the central hub for news from Campus Manitoba, which includes eCourses MB, Set Your Course, OpenEd MB, and Transfer MB. We’ll also highlight stories from our partner institutions that demonstrate a collective commitment to helping students achieve their educational goals. Our partner institutions are Assiniboine Community College, Brandon University, Red River College, The University of Winnipeg, Université de Saint-Boniface, University College of the North, and University of Manitoba. You can also watch this space for a biweekly news and link roundup, which will summarize what’s new and noteworthy at our partner institutions.
Here to help
You may have noticed a “Chat with us” option at the bottom of this website — that’s where our Virtual Help Desk lives. Campus Manitoba offers help to all our visitors on the Virtual Help Desk. Through chat, email, and phone, we’ve helped hundreds of students navigate Manitoba’s post-secondary system over the past two years. Whether you’re looking at online learning through eCourses, browsing transfer credits on Transfer MB, or finding new careers on Set Your Course, we’re standing by to answer any of your questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
