Abstract

SCAN was a unique programme to bring secondary school education to remote Native reserves on the James Bay coast of Ontario, Canada. Using audiographic teleconferencing, teachers based in Moosonee delivered courses to four other coastal communities. The experience was not successful. A number of factors have been determined as contributing to the demise of the programme. Among these were the lack of community ownership of the programme and the lack of a clear understanding by the parties of their respective responsibilities.
