Welcome to UBC’s new online learning environment, Connect. This new system was selected by a campus-wide committee to replace WebCT Vista, which is being retired by June 2014. Overall, we believe this learning environment will feel familiar to you, although there will be exciting new features that we encourage you to explore. The Summer 2012 Term is the first large-scale rollout of the system. We know that this system is new to many of you; the support community at UBC has been working behind the scenes to develop a wide range of resources to support your transition. This website is your gateway to those resources. In addition to the documentation and “just-in-time” learning resources you will find here, there are a myriad of opportunities to connect with colleagues face-to-face through workshops and drop-in sessions; these are advertised here as well.
We hope you find the website helpful! Members of the Connect Implementation Team – comprising of support staff from Faculties, the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology and UBC Information Technology – are committed to making this a positive experience for UBC’s teaching and learning community!
