Adult Night School – On-Line

Textsize
A+ A-

Our Adult Night School On-Line (formerly 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 is self-directed with the ability to access assistance with their course through our tutoring time.

NOTE: 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.

Overview of Adult Night School On-line

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)
  • Access tutoring help when you need it (5:30-9:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays) – on-line via Microsoft Teams
  • 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.

Incorporating Technology Into Learning

  • We use technology to support project-based learning, and to facilitate research, collaboration, reflection, presentation, and inquiry
