Dear OntarioLearn Student

Thank you for registering for an OntarioLearn course with Niagara College. Please read the following information.

OntarioLearn courses involve a combination of online courses delivered by the use of a Learning Management System (LMS) through print-based texts and workbooks. Learning is facilitated by an instructor who keeps in touch with you and your fellow students through OntarioLearn or email. The OntarioLearn system serves as a virtual classroom that you can attend anytime it suits you. It is recommended that you attend at least once a week. Here, you are able to interact with your fellow students and your instructors through LMS-based discussions, and are able to receive and submit assignments.

Submissions and Access

You will have access to your course as per the dates stated at registration. Remember you lose all access to the course, course material, grades, and teacher as of the last day of your course.

  • Make sure to backup and save all work.
  • Check your grades after each assignment/test.
  • Make sure you submit your work – don’t just save.
  • If you have not received a grade, ask your instructor before the course has ended; it is the student’s responsibility to make sure their work has been received by the instructor by the deadlines given.
  • Please be advised that access to your course will no longer be available after your last class. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they have the necessary course material for their exam preparation be fore their last class. Students should be copying course material they feel necessary for exam study purposes on their personal desktop. This proactive approach will ensure you have the necessary course material to study for your exam should it be scheduled past your last class.
