How do the courses work?
Each eSchool course is offered and accessed online. No matter where you are – at home, the library or an Internet café – you can access your course through any computer with Internet access. Every course has compulsory assignments that are located on an exclusive website. On this same site, there are also discussion boards where you can communicate with your instructor and classmates. Each course is designed to last 4 months (assuming that a 90 minute activity is completed once per day from Monday to Friday each week), but can be completed in as short a time as one month. The beauty of eSchool, however, is that you are free to set your own pace and schedule.
Is a textbook required?

The textbooks selected for courses at eSchool are approved by the Ministry of Education in Ontario and are used throughout Ontario schools. Required textbooks are an additional cost and may be purchased at the Canada eSchool bookstore
