College and University Students Can Access More Than 13,000 Online Courses
Today the province launched a new online education portal that will give Ontario postsecondary students access to thousands of accredited online college and university courses.
The new web portal, which will give students greater flexibility to complete their courses, houses more than 13,000 online courses and includes:
A searchable catalogue of courses offered online
Access to 277 new and redesigned courses with transferable credits between participating institutions
Features that easily and immediately identify credit transfer information
Support and resources for faculty on how to design and deliver online courses
Academic and technical support resources for all users.
In total, Ontario is investing $72 million over five years to support the development and operation of eCampus Ontario. All 45 publicly-assisted colleges and universities in Ontario are offering online courses on the web portal.
Providing postsecondary students with a higher quality, more flexible online learning experience is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up by making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history, investing in people’s talents and skills, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
