TRADITIONAL WRDSB 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.  This is not a distance learning course; the teacher is not teaching the content live but rather the student independently works on the course materials during their scheduled Elearning course period, to meet the given due dates.
