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.


It is all about expanding choice and opportunity.  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. 

Please note, e-Learning and the Continuing Education Secondary Credit Program (in-person and online/remote) are two separate departments.  e-Learning courses are asynchronous (not in real time learning) whereas the Continuing Education Secondary Credit Program online/remote courses are synchronous (real time learning).


e-Learning Programs

TDSB provides three unique e-Learning programs. Each program features a primarily asynchronous delivery mode (learning does not occur in real time) 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. e-Learning courses count toward the e-Learning graduation requirement. To learn more, please click here

1. e-Learning Day School

This program is for students currently attending a TDSB high school. e-Learning courses are part of the student's day school timetable and must be approved by their guidance counsellor.

2. e-Credit (18+)

Residents of Ontario who are not currently attending a publicly funded high school and who are 18 years of age or older have the opportunity to complete online courses and earn credits they need for their Ontario graduation diploma.

3. e-Summer School

TDSB e-Summer School is a FREE high school credit program for secondary school students who wish to pursue secondary school courses online!  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 13-20. 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.

We look forward to having you during the summer sessions of 2023. Thank you for your interest in the TDSB e-Summer School.
