Working with Penelakut Elder and Hul’q’umi’num’ Instructor Florence James, members of the VIU@Cowichan Innovation Lab have been digitizing Hul’q’umi’num’ for use in education. Using an iPad mini and a voice recording App, we recorded each word and or phrase in both Hul’q’umi’num’ and English. As well, each recording has been spelled out in both languages. With the help of the Centre for Innovation and Excellence @ VIU, Michael Paskevicius has helped to coordinate this material into D2L, as this will ensure that accessibility to this material has met with agreed upon protocol.
