Online learning is an important part of education in college, university and the workplace. eLearning courses:

  • Allow more flexibility in students' timetables;
  • Access to courses that complement their timetables;
  • Additional opportunities to build independent learning skills;
  • Require the same time commitment as a traditional day-school class;
  • May include course work outside of the traditional school day/environment;
  • Follow the same semester start and end dates as a traditional face-to-face class;
  • Include timelines for completing tasks, assignments and other assessments within the course; and
  • Meet the same curriculum requirements as face-to-face classes as set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

eLearning options are available to all students in the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB). Students who have high achievement in the learning skills (responsibility, organization, independent work, collaboration, initiative and self-regulation) are ideal eLearning candidates.

Note: The RCDSB is a member of the Ontario eLearning Consortium, which allows students access to specialized courses from other school boards who also offer courses through the Consortium. For a complete list of courses, please visit the Ontario eLearning Consortium website. See Student Services for details on these eLearning courses and our course calendar.
