As a facilitator of online education, E-Learning Ontario provides elementary and secondary with more resources to engage their students in learning, as well as an opportunity to share teaching resources with colleagues across Ontario. It gives learners the flexibility they need to succeed.
Through E-Learning Ontario, participating provincially funded school boards and schools have access to:
- The Ontario Educational Resource Bank (OERB) offers online resources created by qualified teachers for teachers and students.
- The provincial Learning Management System (LMS) offers more options for small schools and isolated students.
- The e-Community Ontario websites offers teachers an online collaborative and professional development community.
- The Seat Reservation System (SRS) allows school boards to locate e-learning courses for their students, contributing to addressing issues arising from course unavailability and timetable conflicts.
Ontario Catholic eLearning Consortium
The Ontario Catholic eLearning Consortium was established in 2010 and includes 29 Catholic school boards across Ontario, 21 of which are part of the ‘No Fee Sharing Group’. The primary purpose of the OCeLC is to provide equity of access for Catholic secondary students to take secondary credits developed and taught by Catholic teachers. The OCeLC also supports Technology Enabled Learning & District e-Learning contacts via virtual and face-to-face meetings, as well as hosts an annual Forum.
