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.
