FLO (Facilitating Learning Online) is a growing collection of 1 to 5 week online courses designed to enhance skills required to confidently and effectively facilitate learning online. 

This two-week online course is for individuals who are interested in facilitating the Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) courses, either at their institutions, or the provincial offering through BCcampus/SCoPE.

This is a companion sandbox to the Facilitating Learning Online Facilitation Guide and the 2-week Facilitator Development Online course. It includes self-directed activities and a sandbox version of FLO Fundamentals.
