e-Learning Day School

Registration for Semester 1, 2022 courses is planned for opening at 10:00 AM on June 16, 2022.

e-Learning Day School

If you are TDSB high school student interested in taking an online, mostly asynchronous course as part of your timetable, the e-Learning Day School program may be for you. e-Learning courses are primarily asynchronous and run for a full semester. Teachers deliver synchronous lessons weekly for about an hour. Students are expected to log in regularly and to keep up-to-date with their assignments.

Secondary students across the TDSB may take one e-Learning course per semester as part of their day school timetable*. The course must first be approved by the school guidance counsellor. Once the student is enrolled in an e-Learning course, the course is added to the student's current day school timetable.

e-Learning courses have been developed by the Ministry of Education and are delivered by TDSB teachers who are currently also teaching in TDSB high schools.

*Students must be enrolled in and attending at least one other course in their day school while enrolled in an e-Learning course.
