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.

The Virtual Learning Centre will be joining the conversation about mental health on January 30th, Bell's Let's Talk Day.
VLC staff will be monitoring the forecasted weather events overnight. Exams will proceed as scheduled tomorrow, Tuesday, January 29th, 2019. If students are unable to attend exam venues due to inclement weather, they should email email@example.com from their VLC Gmail accounts. Be sure to include your exam tine and course code. These cases will be rescheduled as necessary on January 30th or 31st, 2019. Students should check their VLC gmail accounts for responses.
We at VLC would like to wish our students well for their exams. If you have kept up with your course work and assignments, taken note of feedback from your teachers, and participated in your course review, you should be well prepared.
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.
