Important News

Provincial Shutdown

The Government of Ontario announced a provincial shutdown on the 21st of December.  As part of this shutdown, all secondary schools will move to online learning starting on January 4th to January 25th. As we are already studying in this model, there will be no changes to our students’ schedules.  Although our office will be closed during this time, we will be checking messages.  We look forward to the return of our students tomorrow.  I hope you were all able to use the time off to recharge for the completion of semester one.

Holiday Update from the Principal

As we approach the end of 2020 I would like to thank you for the flexibility that you have demonstrated as we have all adapted to the impact of COVID-19. This has been a very challenging year for all of us and I encourage you to find ways to take time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate over the break. We recognize that there are many families who are struggling this year. Please remember those who may be less fortunate than yourself and offer to do something kind for someone else. Even the most simple act of kindness can bring hope to somebody who may be struggling or alone during this time. Reminder to everyone that the office will be closed over the from December 19th to January 3rd. On behalf of the entire staff at the VLC I would like to wish everyone a warm and relaxing winter break. I hope that each of you are able to connect with family and friends in a safe manner over the break.  We look forward to seeing everyone back on January 4th. Jeremy Cadeau-MarkPrincipal of eLearning

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.
