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.
NEW IN SEPTEMBER 2018: Grade 12 students who have a full course load at their HWDSB Secondary School but require an additional course to graduate may participate in this program.
What does D2L Hybrid On-line mean?
- Hybrid On-Line means Day/Night School- without having to coming to school all the time
Can’t come to classes because you work during the day or evening?
- 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)

- 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.
