e-Learning involves the use of electronic technologies to support learning and teaching. Through e-Learning Ontario, the Ministry of Education provides school boards new ways to teach Ontario's curriculum and new ways for students to succeed. The Learning Management System (LMS) provided by the Ministry offers access to courses developed and taught by innovative qualified Ontario teachers. Courses follow the same Ministry-mandated curriculum as do regular face-to-face courses. Virtual classrooms provide students with flexibility of scheduling, new ways to succeed and collaborative 21st century learning environments.
Students interested in taking e-Learning courses should contact their school Guidance Counsellor.
