e-Learning at the OCSB

The OCSB is pleased to offer e-Learning, allowing high school students the option of taking one or more of their courses in an online format. An e-Learning course is conducted entirely online using a Learning Management System (LMS). Taking an e-Learning course gives students more flexibility in their timetable and opportunities to earn credits while building valuable independent learning skills that will be beneficial to any post-secondary pathway.

e-Learning offers timetable flexibility

Success in e-Learning courses requires students to be independent and self-motivated learners. E-Learning is not intended to replace face-to-face classes, however, it provides options to students in particular scenarios, such as:
  • the need for flexible timetabling due to special circumstances
  • access to courses that are not offered at the student's school
  • timetable conflicts that cannot be resolved at the student's school

Take the self-assessment quiz before you apply

Complete the online e-Learning self-assessment quiz and determine if e-Learning might be a good option for you. Be sure to print out your results. If you wish to apply for an e-Learning course, you will have to attach your results to the application for submission to your school Guidance office.
