eLearning Program Information for Parents

 

ELearning education may be a new experience for everyone.  It is an exciting way to present information to students. 

  • Students are better prepared for the independent learning environment at university and/or college. 
  • Students develop time management and organizational skills. 
  • Students get the opportunity to take a course that may not be offered at their home school or that will not fit into their timetable. 

Students are able to go through the lessons as often as they wish.  The course material is always available.  

 

What is involved? 

Course Material

Each course is made up of units.  Each unit contains a set of lessons and assignments.  All materials presented in the course meet the Ministry of Education's expectations.  

 

Time

Students have some flexibility with scheduling the time they spend on and off-line.  The teacher will set due dates for assessment. The student is responsible to meet those deadlines.  Regular attendance in the course makes the difference between success and failure. A daily commitment of approximately 5.5 hours per day is required.

 

Parental Role

Thank you for taking an interest in your child's education.  Parental involvement increases the chances of your child doing well in school and in this course. 

 

Spending a few minutes a day with them will increase their chance of success greatly.  Ask your child to show you how to check for due dates.  They will also be able to share how they can check their grades and get feedback from their online teacher.
