e-LEARNING

 
Taking an online course may provide more flexibility in a students timetable and provides a valuable opportunity for the student to build independent learning skills that will be needed to be successful in whatever post-secondary pathway he or she chooses.
 
The OCDSB offers online courses to students enrolled in any of the secondary schools within the District as part of our day school program. We also support opportunities for students to take day school online courses through other school districts across Ontario when these courses are not available within our District. Students must have the permission of their principal to take an online course. For more information about eLearning opportunities, please go to www.ocdsb.ca/programs/sec/ol/elearning/Pages/default.aspx.
 
Any student interested in taking an online course should contact their guidance counsellor for registration instructions. Students must complete a brief online orientation before their course begins.
 
Online Courses FAQs
Q: How many online courses can a student take?
A: Online courses are part of the day school program. A student may not take more than a full course load which is no more than four courses per semester (combined total of in-school and online day school courses).
 
Q: Are online courses easier than face-to-face courses?
A: No. In fact, some students find online courses very challenging. To be successful in an online course you need:
  • -daily, reliable internet access;
  • -enough time set aside to work through your online course and complete the assignments;
  • -the ability to follow written instructions and to keep yourself on task.
 
Q: At what time of the day will the course be running?
A: Students are expected to log in every school day; however, they may choose the best time of day for them to learn—students and their teacher do not need to be logged on at the same time. It should be noted that there will be timelines for completing assignments and tasks associated with the course.
 
Q: When does the course start and end?
A: The semester start and end dates correspond to those for the OCDSB calendar. Each course is moderated by a teacher and students progress through a course together with their class much like they would in a face-to-face semestered class.
