Expanding Student Learning Experiences Beyond Traditional Classrooms

If Woodland does not offer a specific course, or if that course does not fit into a students timetable, then we are able to offer eLearning course through Ontario Public High Schools.  These courses are free to Canadian Citizens. 

eLearning and Distance Education is not for every student. 

To be successful at this mode of learning, a student must have the following skills:

  1. Organization - Assignments must be submitted on time without constant reminders from teachers.
  2. Initiative - A student must set aside time each day to work on their course.  Students must also be able to initiate conversations with their instructors if they are struggling or don't understand something.
  3. Reading Comprehension - eLeaning involves reading information and then using that information to complete assignments.  

We work with a variety of e-learning providers. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Upper Grand DSB Independent Learning
    • publicly funded
    • can begin and complete the course at any time
    • runs through the summers
