Course Troubleshooting

I am taking an eLearning course but I do not see it under "My Courses" widget or "My Courses in Other Orgs". When should I see it?

If you are taking an eLearning course within the OCDSB your course will appear in the My Courses widget, or if you are taking a course with another board it will appear in the My Courses in Other Orgs widget on the Student Landing page.  The course may not appear until the start date.  If your course does not appear in the respective widget after the course’s official start date, contact your Guidance Counsellor immediately for assistance.
