D2L Night School (Adult Program)

Last updated on Friday, November 17, 2017.

HYBRID ON-LINE Learning Courses for Adults
NOTE: Not available for students in High School

Our D2L Hybrid On-Line Learning program combines face-to-face (F2F) and on-line delivery with tutoring available. This provides for less separation between learner and the teacher, especially in the F2F stages of the course. As a student becomes more comfortable, the remainder of the course follows an on-line course model with the student in charge of their learning.
What does D2L Night School mean?

  • Hybrid On-Line means Night School- without coming to school every night

Can’t come to classes because you work during the day?

  • You can access to your course 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on-line on the D2L Learning Platform (provided to you for free)
  • Watch video lessons of your teacher on-line at your pace (videos not available for all courses)
  • Come for in-person tutoring help when you need it
  • Have control over your learning and meet with your teacher when you want

Hybrid courses provide an opportunity to utilize the best of the web and the best of the F2F environments. On-line and F2F activities and interactions can vary widely in hybrid courses, thus creating a new learning opportunity for adults to improve literacy and numeracy and complete credits for their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

INCORPORATING TECHNOLOGY INTO LEARNING FOR ADULTS

  • We use technology to deliver on-line courses for adults that have work and family commitments
  • We provide all Course content on-line with tutoring support in a class setting available two nights per week (F2F)
  • We use technology to support project-based learning, and to facilitate research, collaboration, reflection, presentation, and inquiry
  • All courses are secondary school credit based
  • Academic Upgrading (AU) is available to prepare learners who are not quite ready for English and Math credits (6-12 week AU Numeracy program available)
