This project aims to develop a generic model of a multiple-media learning system. It results from a reflection undertaken by UQAM’s Deanship of undergraduate studies about educational models. Large-group pedagogy was the first orientation. Subsequently, a project subsidized by FODAR (Fonds de Développement Académique Réseau), in 1994-1995, investigated the possible adaptation of teletraining strategies to campus teaching in the context of a large university. In the same line of thought, the present partnership project to develop multiple-media courses was submitted to FODAR in 1995-1996 by three universities (UQAM, UQTR and TELUQ), under the direction of UQAM.

The main objective of this project consists in designing and producing a transferable, flexible, adaptable and hybrid course model that could serve either for campus or distance education. Developing such a model involves considerations such as organization of teaching, educational quality and strategies, as regards technological choices.

This project does not fit in with the traditional meaning of distance education because of its encompassing campus dimension. The generic model must enable design and production of courses that are focused on integrated pedagogical strategies and not only on the creation of a database or a complementary teaching instrument. The generic model will rest on a computerized learning system that takes advantage of information and communication technologies. This environment will be used in a series of courses and adapted according to needs. Consequently, we already foresee that the objectives of the system could vary depending on the intended client.
