Renowned Program

The Virtual Learning Centre has been offering Ontario Secondary School students a wide range of flexible, and well-designed high school courses since 1997. It is a renowned program that is unlike any other eLearning initiative in Ontario.

The VLC offers students a full range of learning opportunities powered by the latest online technologies available.

We are committed to setting very high standards for distance learning and know that the student-teacher interaction is key to student success. For this reason, we encourage all of our students to attend web meetings, and to adhere to the course schedule and all due dates. This level of rigor builds a strong work ethic and forges a classroom and school community thereby preparing our students for post-secondary studies.

For more information please review the FAQ section on our website.

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test–OSSLT

EQAO has announced that there will be two writing sessions for the OSSLT students this year. The first in the Fall and a second session in the spring. The Ministry has also announced students graduating in the 2021-22 (including the summer) school year will have the OSSLT requirement waived.

VLC students who are in grade 11 or grade 12 students who will not be graduating this year will be able to write in the fall session. Instructions for signing up have been shared through email and in the student guide.

VLC students who are in grade 10 this year will write in the spring session. No action is required for grade 10 students at this time. Additional information will be provided closer to the spring.

Our Courses

All of our courses are taught by highly qualified Ontario teachers who understand how to blend the power of synchronous, streamed communication with the flexibility of static, anywhere-anytime course content. Students succeed in our program and our attrition rates (under 20%) demonstrate that our program works for most learners.

How are online courses taught?

When you register for an online course within the Virtual Learning Centre, you will be provided with login information such as a username and id. You will also receive an Internet address (URL) to your course. When you login for the first time, an introductory message from your teacher will greet you. This message will outline the course content and describe how the course will be delivered and what is required of you. Although all of the Virtual Learning Centre’s online courses look the same, your teacher is ultimately in charge of how the course will run.

Who teaches the online courses?

Certified teachers who are employed within the Trillium Lakelands District School Board deliver online course material for the Virtual Learning Centre. Each teacher receives training and support so that they are comfortable with the online approach to both teaching and learning.

Will I benefit from online courses?

In most cases, this form of course delivery works well. Obvious prerequisites include motivation, computer familiarity, and the ability to work independently and meet deadlines. Remember, though, that although there is daily contact with others in the class, there may not be any face to face meetings. For students with some learning styles, taking online courses may not be an appropriate choice.
