e-Learning involves the use of electronic technologies to support learning and teaching. Through e-Learning Ontario, the Ministry of Education provides school boards new ways to teach Ontario's curriculum and new ways for students to succeed.
Students interested in taking e-Learning courses should contact their school Guidance Counsellor.

Important Note to Travellers:
A recent change has been made by Microsoft and the LDCSB ICTS department to help combat phishing e-mails and online identity theft. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has been enabled. MFA is a way to protect users by prompting you to confirm that the computer or device you are using to access your board Office 365 account is trusted by you. This is often done by sending a text message to you or using an Authenticator application installed on one of your devices. Students need to be aware that if you are planning to travel outside of Canada or the US, you will need to set up MFA before you leave Canada to access your Board e-mail or any sites (like the VLE) that use it to "authenticate" or grant you access. It cannot be set up outside of Canada.
There are three ways to configure MFA with Office365:
- Add a cell phone number to receive SMS text messages
- Add a home/office phone number to receive an automated phone call.
- Install the Microsoft Authenticator App on any WIFI enabled iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Android Tablet or Windows PC to approve via a popup.
Prior to the start of summer school, registered students should watch the following videos. You will need to enter your Board e-mail address and password in order to access the videos. If you are having difficulty logging in with the information sent in your confirmation e-mail, please contact the Summer School Office:
