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 DDSB students who will be in Grade 11 and 12 have an opportunity to enroll in two online courses per year (one per semester). If you are interested in enrolling in one of these courses, please speak to a member of your school's Guidance department.

For further information, contact the eLearning department.

Adult learners

You can visit the Durham Continuing Education (DCE) website for adult and continuing education eLearning opportunities, or contact DCE.eLearning@ddsb.ca for more information.

Summer school eLearning

Summer eLearning is ideal for students who can't attend the regular, full 18-day in class schedule. We recommend these courses if you wish to gain up to 1 credit in a subject you haven't studied before. You can also upgrade a mark in a course you have completed. Course are available in July and August for a variety of Grade 10 to 12 courses. Civics (CHV201) and Career Studies (GLC201) require separate registrations.
