e-Learning, or electronic learning, is the delivery of a learning, training, or education program by electronic means.

It involves the use of a computer or electronic device to provide training, educational, or learning material. In most cases, the entire course, from learning content to writing the final exam, is done remotely though a Learning Management System*, where the student and the teacher never meet face-to-face.

* The Learning Management System (LMS) used for all e-Learning Ontario courses is maintained by Desire2Learn, the official provider of long-distance education for the Ontario Ministry of Education.

Please contact us immediately if you have further questions or concerns.


The Ministry of Education has established three priorities for the education system:

* increasing student achievement

* closing gaps in student achievement

* increasing public confidence in publicly funded education

The WECDSB endeavours to maintain these priorities for all e-Learning Courses using the Provincial Learning Management System, or LMS. The Ministry of Education has contracted Desire2Learn to manage this virtual learning environment for all of our staff and students. The LMS provides rich learning opportunities in a collaborative, safe, and secure environment.
