E-learning in Nunavut takes another step forward this fall, as Nunavut Arctic College and its partners launch the latest online program—a unique, made-in-Nunavut course designed to support the volunteers who staff, govern, and program community radio stations across Nunavut. It will cover the fundamentals of broadcast law, production, distribution, and governance for a community station – and without a single flipchart, binder or classroom.
