e-Learning courses have been developed by the Ministry of Education and are delivered by TDSB day school teachers. The courses are taught on a regular semester basis. Unlike 'virtual courses,' e-Learning courses are primarily asynchronous. Teachers deliver sychronous lessons for about 60-90 minutes each week and then work with students through tutorials, office hours, individual conference throughout the rest of the course. Teachers consult with students about their scheduling needs and offer flexibiltiy in scheduling their lessons.
Secondary students across the TDSB may take one e-Learning course per semester as part of their day school timetable. That means students must also be taking courses in their day school while they are enrolled in their e-learning course. Students will remain on the roll at their day school and require their guidance counsellor's approval to take an e-Learning Day School course.
All enrolled students are invited to attend an after-school, online orientation session to meet their e-Learning teacher at the beginning of each semester (September and February). The orientation session is recorded and is available for late-registering students to view.
