When convenient and as frequently as you like, use your username login and password to access the learning management system. Then at a pace suitable to your learning, you can progress through the interactive lessons, and practise quizzes. When you are ready you can complete the unit evaluations and submit them into the drop box for your teacher to evaluate and provide feedback. All unit evaluations are completed and submitted online. You can type out your answers, do them on paper and scan them or take a picture of your handwritten work as submission of the evaluations, whatever means you are comfortable with. After you receive a grade and feedback, you can then proceed to the next unit and so forth until the course is complete. If you are not satisfied with your level of achievement, you may make a request to redo the summative(s) in order to demonstrate your true level of understanding of the concepts. At the mid-point in the course, we will mail you a first report card, and upon completion of the remaining units and the proctored final exam you will be mailed a final report card.
In most cases, this form of course delivery works well to support all types of learning styles. Students should be motivation to excel, have familiarity with basic computer applications (word processer, web browser), and possess the ability to work independently. Remember there is also an Ontario trained and certified teacher assigned to assist, encourage and communicate with you and will be able to help you achieve your goals in the course.
One of the greatest features of on-line learning is the flexibility it provides in allowing you to customize your schedule to complete the course at your own pace. Course progress is measured on the completion of the assignments, discussions and summative evaluations. You can login to your course and work at any time and at any pace. Students are eligible for a midterm after finishing half of a course (usually 2 units) and a final mark after completing the minimal number of 110 hours (minimum 4 weeks).
No, you do not require your day school’s permission to register for a course. You only need to make sure you have the prerequisite credits.
Successful registration into the course requires you to complete four steps. First, you will need to submit a course request; this is achieved by submitting your information using the “Register Online” tab from the main page. Secondly, you will be required to submit proof of the prerequisite for the course you have applied. Third, is the confirmation of fee payment; currently we are accepting funds through Credit Card or Cheque. Lastly, once the above steps are complete, you will be contacted by your teacher within 24hrs with instructions on accessing the course. If required a textbook will be mailed to your home address soon after.
The final exam is typically a paper-pen evaluation written at a mutually agreed time, date, and location. The final exam will be proctored, meaning a suitable adult will supervise you writing the final exam. This process ensures the security and integrity of the exam.
Yes, we can send marks directly to OUAC, OCAS and Day Schools. Just make sure to provide your teacher with your OUAC/OCAS number.
You will need a computer; either PC or Mac will run the course content. (Please see the PC requirements tab). You will also need an email address, any type will be fine so long as it can send and receive attachments and lastly you will need a reliable internet provider, which we recommend high speed.
My experience has been amazing. My teacher was incredibly accommodating and I knew that he was truly supportive in my goals. Everything was made for students to understand the course content easier and I am so glad that I found this school!
I like the fact that we are able to take this course at our own pace
Having control over when I complete assignments and tests is probably the best part of the program. Now school can revolve around my schedule, not the other way around!
Finally a student centered program that is designed to cater around the learners’ schedule rather than the timelines of the school board
This program saved my vacation, my family and I were able to go away for a couple of weeks during the summer and my son was able to take a course he desperately needed right from the cottage.
