Remote learning, distance learning, online learning, e-learning: theses are all terms we are becoming increasingly accustomed to seeing on an almost day-to-day basis.
Online learning can mean drastically different things from board to board, from school to school.
So, how does it work at Christian Virtual School? At CVS, we strive to maintain continuity, familiarity, and engagement in our learning environment to ensure that the emphasis is placed on learning the material, not on how to navigate the online tools.
All course content, assessments, activities, instruction, and even the final exam are available online through our secure learning environment. This negates the need for any textbooks or external resources. We provide everything a student will require to be successful in their courses. Students are also connected with an Ontario Certified Teacher for each course they are registered in. Teachers are available to answer questions, provide guidance and feedback, mark assignments, and issue report cards.
Not only can students register from anywhere at anytime, they can begin working through their courses as soon as the next business day. Students are given 12 months from their date of enrollment to complete their courses, giving students the freedom to work at their own pace, at a schedule that is going to work best for them.
We offer this flexibility in order to connect learners to online Christian education, allowing students to choose when and where to study, when to submit assessments, and when to write their final exam. Our fully online, self-paced courses follow the Ontario curriculum and challenge students to grow both spiritually and academically.
For those who have not studied online before, have only recently begun e-learning, or have been learning online for years, we know it can seem overwhelming. We’re here to help!
