The Waterloo Region District School Board’s e-Learning courses are designed to allow students to take courses and earn secondary school credits on days and at times that are convenient for them.

There are set due dates for assignments and assessments, but each week students have the flexibility to get course work done as their daily schedule permits. Daily participation and regular interaction with the teacher and classmates leads to the greatest success in e-Learning.

Why Do Students Consider Online Learning?


  • expands course availability and timetable flexibility (i.e. provides access to courses that might otherwise be unavailable due to timetable conflicts, courses not being offered, or courses having full enrolment)
  • provides an engaging, creative and interactive learning environment that may compliment a student’s learning style
  • prepares students for college, university and the world of work
