Welcome to the e-Learning website

We have seen that students can thrive in digital classrooms that are engaging, learning-focused and inclusive. The TDSB is a leader in the development and delivery of innovative digital learning experiences. We offer a wide variety of online learning opportunities that allow students to participate with other students in continuous learning, communication and collaboration.


e-Learning provides students with learning experiences that are:

  • flexible: students can learn anytime, anywhere
  • relevant: students prepare for their future in an increasingly digital world
  • engaging: students enjoy rich, interactive, online content

The TDSB e-Learning team offers three distinct programs aimed at serving the needs of high school students and those over the age of 18 years. 

e-Learning Programs

TDSB provides three unique e-Learning programs. Each program features a primarily asynchronous delivery mode with synchronous lessons supported by access to teacher support. All courses are delivered through 'Brightspace.' Each of the programs first includes an Introductory Module which covers how to use the features of Brightspace. That is followed by Orientation with the course teacher who explains the features and set up of the delivery of the course itself. 

1. e-Learning Day School

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.

Please visit the e-Learning Day School page for more information.

2. e-Credit (18+)

The e-Credit Adult program is for adult learners age 18 and over who are no longer attending a day school and want to earn credits online. This program offers two semesters from September to June.  

Our eligibility criteria require that students enrolled in the e-Credit Course Program must not be attending another TDSB or non TDSB day school simultaneously. If you are enrolled in a full-time day school program you will be removed from your e-Credit Course.

Please visit the e-Credit (18+) page for more information.

3. e-Summer School

Our popular summer online program is offered in two sessions throughout July and August. This program is open to TDSB and other Ontario secondary school students aged 14-20. The program is primarily asynchronous with direct teaching for about one hour/day and teachers available for the rest of the school day to hold office hours, small group sessions, individual tutorials and respond to student questions via email.

TDSB e-Summer School is a FREE high school credit program for secondary school students who wish to pursue secondary school courses online! TDSB e-Summer School offers dozens of online courses available in July and August sessions.  We look forward to having you during the summer sessions of 2021. Thank you for your interest in the TDSB e-Summer School.
