Easy to UsePowerful and Cost Effective

MTEL, the Management Tool for Experiential Learning, is an online service used by Ontario secondary schools and school boards to manage the activities of students involved in Cooperative Education and other forms of experiential learning.

It has been developed by senior Ontario co-op educators who have years of experience working within the Ministry of Education guidelines to create and manage Experiential Learning programs in boards across Ontario, as Co-op teachers and as Co-op/OYAP board coordinators.

The MTEL application offers two user levels, one for teachers and one for board coordinators. Teachers and board coordinators are provided with all the tools needed to manage their experiential learning programs efficiently, saving time  and energy, and providing professional-looking and invaluable resources.

As a web-based service, MTEL is always available, yet requires no special software or IT support by school boards. MTEL facilitates teacher-to-teacher and school-to-school collaboration and information sharing, while carefully controlling private and confidential information.
