TRADITIONAL ELEARNING COURSES

Students may choose semester long eLearning courses in MYWAY. eLearning course codes end in an “E”, for example ENG3UE. These courses would run from Sept.-January or Feb. – June.   The student works asynchronously and independently on the course content set up by the teacher.  Students need to email teachers if they need further instructions.  Students taking an eLearning course would have a designated period  during their school day to accomplish the work on this online credit.  Teachers outline the amount of work that needs to be accomplished each week; tests and discussions through posts also happen online. Students must log into the course regularly to show attendance and participation in the coursework.
