Athabasca Landing is a secure, social media system operated by Athabasca University Canada's Open University. Like all social systems, the Landing gains value as it assists community members in meeting, interacting, supporting and encouraging each other and their collaborative activities. We thus invite you to explore the many tools and functions of this system. By adding content and inviting your colleagues to do so as well, we enrich and enhance our distributed learning community.
If you have questions, suggestions or concerns about anything you see on the Landing, please email Landing@athabascau.ca
Athabasca Landing was named after the original settlement that grew into the current town of Athabasca, Alberta. Athabasca Landing served as a debarkation site for paddle steamers and human powered craft heading north to the Klondike gold fields, northern settlements and the Arctic Ocean. The Landing served historically as a source of community, provision and support. This online version of Athabasca Landing aspires to provide these same services to current and future members of the Athabasca University Community.
