ADLC’s Knowledge and Employability courses are available only through ADLC’s Teacher Support service. The superuser of the school can add any K&E course via SIS. If the school does not have an assigned superuser, one can be requested using the SuperUser Request Form on www.adlc.ca. ADLC’s Partner Support will process these requests and send a username and password to the new superuser.
There is no cost to schools or teachers to access courses via Teacher Support.
Assessments(s): No tests or exams needed because these are not required as per the Program of Study.
