The word nool itself was created to represent its purpose – the “n” stands for numeracy, the infinity symbol “oo” represents life-long learning, and the “l” for literacy. nool offers a variety of video tutorials, tip sheets, interactive tools and resources in foundational math, academic writing and study strategies.

Although it was launched in 2009 as an open, online learning resource for first year, first generation students, nool continues to be an open learning resource for students to help strengthen their academic skills.

We hope you find nool helpful when developing the foundational skills needed to be successful in the first year of university and beyond.
