Remote Teaching 

Teaching Continuity

Teaching Continuity is an eLearn course created by CTE that contains resources to support remote teaching. Faculty recognize that teaching comes before technology so choosing which tools you’ll use depnds on the learning objectives in your course. Because Teaching Continuity was designed around remote learning during the pandemic, it offers guidance for how to use eLearn (CapU’s LMS) including adding modules, uploading content and creating quizzes, quiz banks, and gradebooks.


eLearn Template

CTE has developed an eLearn course Template that can be imported to your course shell. You can customize the basic modular design to your remote teaching requirements. To have the template imported to your course contact edtech@capilanou.ca.


  • Weekly modules
  • Pre-made blocks and customizable banner image
  • Sample module with useful content for teaching online


An ePortfolio allows students to curate self-created content in a web format that reflects who they are as a learner. At CapU, ePortfolios are created using WordPress giving students an ability to create a visual and design driven experience of their learning path. Students can use the ePortfolio to reflect on how and what they learned from a particular assignment, while also sharing examples of their best work with peers and instructors. Encouraging the transformation of learner-centred ePortfolios into professional portfolios, which can be exported to a commercial web platform once they graduate, gives students a way to broadcast their strengths as self-reflective persons engaged in their chosen fields. Faculty can use ePortfolios for non-disposable assignments that are case based, profession oriented, and with real-world application. Sign on to ePortfolios here.

  • Flexible WordPress design templates
  • Advanced Divi editor
  • Sharable content
