Welcome to Athabasca University's e-Lab

Welcome to the e-Lab at AU, an open and interactive virtual lab space dedicated to discovery and demonstration for tertiary online education.

The e-Lab contains six main areas:

  • Virtual Tool Cupboard -- a collection of open-access, online tools and resources developed by Athabasca University and other organizations and individuals. The Virtual Tool Cupboard is available to everyone.
  • Open Online Courses, Tutorials, and Resources – a growing list of self-study open access courses, short courses, tutorials, and educational resources to help you develop or brush up on your digital literacy, research and study skills
  • e-Portfolio – one of the most popular professional development tools online and used increasingly throughout tertiary education in courses and programs, e-Portfolio allows you to chart your learning and share your accomplishments, whether for learning, for your research, or in your professional life. Anyone with an Athabasca University affiliation may use e-Portfolio at AU.
  • The Landing -- a social media space open to anyone with an AU log-in
  • Research and Development -- outlines the pedagogically-related research and development that takes place in the e-Lab.

The e-Lab at AU is open and interactive to members of the Athabasca University community: students, faculty, staff, alumni and partners. We also invite members of the general public to explore the affordances of the e-Lab for their own learning and skills development.

Please make good use of the e-Lab, and let us know how we can improve our services for you!
