Real Money for
PEGGasus Learning Initiative
Receives $200,000 From Feds
The online learning marketplace called PEGGasus has received up to $200,000
flying power from the federal government. Edmonton West MP Anne McLellan,
of justice and the attorney general of Canada, made the presentation recently
of Jane Stewart, minister of human resources.
APEGGA and the University of Alberta Faculty of Extensionwill collaborate
industry partners and the University of Calgary to establish a virtual
marketplace for professional engineers, geologists and geophysicists.
Engineering and Geoscience Online Learning Marketplace will be a
useful tool in disseminating information on innovative learning technologies
for employees, the federal government says in a news release. This
prototype will also be transferable to other sectors,
trades and professions.
The government of Canada is proud to encourage greater employer
commitment to supporting learning activities for employees, said
Ms McLellan. This project will improve access to technology-enabled
learning opportunities for engineers, geologists and geophysicists.
