Name of creator
The Canadian Centre for Learning Systems (CCLS), a non-profit organization for the development, evaluation and use of learning systems, was opened in April 1985 in cooperation with Calgary educational institutions such as The University of Calgary and Mount Royal College, and three corporate partners, Honeywell Canada, Control Data Canada and Reid Chartwell Canada Ltd. It served as a general information centre, engaging in joint venture and contract research and the establishment of "incubator facilities" for young inventors. The Centre's mandate was to provide professionals with the ability to control the opportunities of the information age by facilitating training sessions in the application of specific information technologies and products commercially available, by developing and coordinating educational sessions geared to targeted segments of the business community, by developing and coordinating continuing education sessions on information sources in specific subject areas geared to the information professional, and by facilitating and developing conferences and joint exhibitions of information technologies. Barbara Samuels, a senior administrator at The University of Calgary, was the first executive director of CCLS.
Deposited by Canadian Centre for Learning Systems, and Vice-President (Priorities and Planning) office.
