E-Learning

Students can earn Ontario high school credits online through our Board's e-Learning program. Courses meet all curriculum expectations and standards and all courses are taught by fully qualified teachers in collaboration with eLearning Ontario.

An e-Learning course is conducted entirely online using Desire 2 Learn, a Learning Management System (LMS). Taking an e-Learning course gives students more flexibility in their timetable and opportunities to earn credits while building valuable independent learning skills that will be beneficial to any post-secondary pathway.

Success in e-Learning courses requires students to be independent and self-motivated learners. E-Learning is not intended to replace face-to-face classes, however, it provides options to students in particular scenarios, such as:

  • the need for flexible timetabling due to special circumstances;
  • access to courses that are not offered at the student's school; and
  • timetable conflicts that cannot be resolved at the student's school.
