Landing : Athabascau University

Landing logo Welcome to Athabasca Landing! 

If you have an AU login or are an invited guest, this is your site. You can use this site to share, communicate and connect. Just log in with your usual AU username and password to join over 10,000 other members.

You are currently only seeing posts that Landing users have made publicly available. There's a great deal more to see when you are logged in. If you have an Athabasca University username, log in to see more!

If you wish to become an invited guest, please contact an AU staff member, who may make the request on your behalf. We do not support self-registration for non-AU users, though we welcome thoughtful comments on public posts.

NOTICE: sorry for the performance problems and timeouts on Friday, 30 November. We have been under attack from a (so far) unknown network of devices that, wittingly or otherwise, has put the site under around 35 times the strain it usually needs to handle. We are monitoring the situation and have taken some precautionary measures to try to prevent this recurring, that we hope have been successful. If you happen to control a botnet or distributed web crawler that is ignoring advice from our robots.txt, please stop doing it! We're just a bunch of educators and students trying to learn together. If not, thanks for your patience.
