If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, then eLearning may be the answer for you.
eLearning provides the flexibility to take a course from anywhere at anytime. Elearning courses at KPRDSB provide students with access to over 100 secondary courses, many of which are taught by Kawartha Pine Ridge teachers. The remaining courses are taught by other teachers from across any of the 20 school boards that comprise the Ontario eLearning Consortium (of which Kawartha Pine Ridge is a member).
eLearning courses are taught by innovative Ontario certified teachers who are subject specialists in the eLearning area in which they teach. These eLearning courses adhere to the same expectations outlined in the Ontario curriculum as do regular face-to-face courses. The course codes are the same and appear on the student's report in precisely the same manner.
You may register for eLearning courses through your school Guidance Counsellor. Seats are filled on a first come first served basis.
After registering for an eLearning course, a student will participate in an orientation to on-line learning and the Learning Management System (LMS).
Each school at Kawartha Pine provides computers that are allocated for the use of eLearners. ELearning students are expected to make use of these computers working on their eCourses during the period they are scheduled for eLearning. With that said, eLearning students have 24/7 access to their courses from anywhere they have access to the Internet and a system compatible digital device.
While eLearning is not for everyone, there are many students who thrive in this learning environment. To assess if eLearning is right for you, consider the following questions... If you answer "Yes" to many of these questions, then you likely have what it takes to do well in an eLearning course:
