Province Improving Online Learning

Ontario Giving Postsecondary Students More Flexibility

Ontario is creating a Centre of Excellence for Online Learning to give students across the province one window of access to high-quality, transferable online courses, while reducing course duplication.

To launch in time for the 2015-16 school year, Ontario Online will improve collaboration between colleges and universities by minimizing duplication -- allowing students to take the same, centralized online course. The online platform will also give students the flexibility to receive world-class instruction wherever and whenever works best for them. It will operate through three inter-related hubs:

  • The course hub will offer state-of-the-art online courses that are fully transferable between participating colleges and universities, giving students more options to earn credits and complete their education.
  • The instruction hub will allow institutions to develop and share best practices, research, and data on how best to teach online courses.
  • The support hub will provide academic and technical assistance to students, instructors, and institutions.

Supporting a world-class postsecondary education system that is a leader in innovation and online learning is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure, and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
