We’re living in a virtual world these days. From Twitter to
Facebook, iPads and laptops, students are spending more time online than ever.
At the DSBN, we recognize the internet’s potential to be a
powerful resource for lifelong learning, and understand the need to provide
opportunities for students to learn in innovative and engaging ways. Supporting the
needs of 21st century learners, e-Learning credit courses have been offered to
students since September 2009 as part of their day school program.
E-Learning courses enable students to learn in a more flexible engaging
environment, uses technology to provide students current, accurate information,
and increases opportunity for students’ first choice courses.
Students may select an e-Learning course that is
not available at his/her home school and/or the selection of an e-Learning
course may resolve a timetable conflict. Students need to spend at least as
much time with their online course work as they would in a face-to-face
Students who are self directed, motivated, and
able to plan, organize time and complete assignments and activities, along with
being comfortable with technology, may want to consider an e-Learning course.
