E-Learning Ontario is the branch of the Ministry of Education that oversees the Provincial e-Learning Strategy. This strategy provides all Ontario school boards, schools and students with access to valuable digital learning opportunities and resources in four different areas: E-Learning, Blended Learning, Homework Help and Digital Resources.
Online learning, commonly known as e-Learning, is becoming part of education in all course types, including college, university and the workplace.
E-Learning courses can allow for more flexibility in a student's timetable. They can also provide access to programming that may not be available at the school.
E-Learning requires the same time commitment as a normal face-to-face class. Courses follow the same semester start and end dates as a normal face-to-face class. Clear timelines for completing tasks, assignments and other assessments are provided.
The Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) currently offers a variety of online courses taught by qualified teachers. The e-Learning experience can be innovative, relevant and engaging for students who enjoy this learning environment. E-Learning courses use the same curriculum requirements of face-to-face classes, as set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
In addition, the HPEDSB is a member of the Ontario e-Learning Consortium (OeLC). This organization is made up of several Ontario school boards which have agreed to open their e-Learning courses to students from all member school boards. This approach provides students with access to courses that meet their needs and interests.
For more information about e-Learning opportunities, students should contact their school's guidance counsellor.
Some of the other tools that e-Learning Ontario offers include:
- Blended Learning - allows classroom teachers to combine face-to-face and online learning for all students in Kindergarten to grade 12 using the provincial Learning Management System.
- Ontario Educational Resource Bank (OERB) - a password-protected website with teacher-shared resources for grades K to 12 including lesson plans, videos, activities, maps and interactive multimedia searchable by grade, course/ subject, overall expectations and keyword.
- E-Community Ontario- a password-protected website where Ontario teachers can communicate, share insights and effective practices with colleagues.
The HPEDSB provides access to e-Learning and Blended Learning through its Digital Learning Homepage. Visit below for additional online tools such as Homework Help, Learn 360, TurnItIn and more.
