E-Learning in Rainbow Schools

e-Learning Login

Rainbow District School Board provides a number of online secondary school courses throughout the school year as part of the provincial e-Learning strategy.

Each of the Board’s ten secondary schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin offer at least one online course. Ten courses will be available during semester 1 and nine courses will be available during semester 2.

e-Learning gives students more opportunities to earn credits and achieve success. Rainbow District School Board teachers deliver the online courses using a learning management system that students will be able to access at school and at home.

Students can supplement their timetable with an online course, giving them greater flexibility and choice in completing their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Students can also take courses that are not available at their home school or not accessible due to scheduling conflicts.

The online courses will also provide a new learning option for students – one that maximizes the use of technology. e-Learning courses are very interactive. A wide variety of technology will be used to support online learning including electronic whiteboards, chat rooms, e-mail, and discussion groups.

Students can register for e-Learning courses through their Guidance Department.
