Welcome to eLearning!

We are very excited to begin working with you in this digital environment.

eLearning students require skills that include organization, self-direction, time management, problem-solving, effective communication, responsibility, honesty and willingness to access textbooks (if needed), a working computer and an Internet connection.

Watch the video below for instructions to access your courses.

Important Dates

Students wanting to pursue full eLearning courses should contact their school during the week of August 31 to September 4.

For the 2020-2021 school year, students that would prefer to attend school remotely have two options:

  1. They may choose to enrol in available eLearning courses (note – this may require changes to the student timetable and/or course selection); or
  2. Students may choose to remain in their designated courses, participating with classmates during the scheduled remote learning segments of the rotation and undertake independent remote study during the in-person portion of the rotation for their assigned cohort.

2020-2021 Course Offerings

Students may earn Ontario high school credits online through the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board e-Learning program. Courses meet all curriculum expectations and standards, and all classes are taught by fully qualified teachers in the District in collaboration with eLearning Ontario and the Ontario e-Learning Consortium.
