Durham District School Board (DDSB) offers a dynamic way to teach and learn through courses in an online eLearning platform. eLearning provides students with a flexible alternative to the face-to-face classroom. This online setting can support a student's educational plan when courses are not available to them at their home school, when a flexible alternative learning environment is required or when matching student preferred learning styles to programming needs.

The benefits of eLearning include:

  • Access to online courses through video and interactive media
  • Learning tailored to student needs
  • Easy access to resources and courses
  • More credit choices for graduation
  • Opportunities for parents to engage with a student's education at home
  • Access to more course options for small or isolated schools

eLearning types

We have opportunities for:

Secondary school day students

Interested Durham District School Board (DDSB) students who will be in Grade 11 and 12 have an opportunity to enroll in, up to 8 online courses per year, according to course availability. If you are interested in enrolling in one of these courses, please speak to a member of your school's Guidance department.

Families who are transitioning from DDSB@Home to eLearning should review this document for frequently asked questions about the differences between DDSB@Home and regular eLearning.
