The Student Resources page and Student Center pages are now live! This means students and their families can learn about iLearn classes before the official start date.
What Are The Student Resources & Student Centre Pages?
The Student Resources page is an excellent place to familiarize yourself with the forms and resources used by iLearn students. The Getting Started button on the resources page will take you to the Student Centre page where you will find videos that get you up to speed on the online learning process and online class procedures.
The student centre is the perfect starting place for students to get comfortable learning online. The Student Centre videos address many frequently asked questions like “how do I meet with my teacher?”, and “how do I complete a discussion assignment?” among many others.
Students should watch the videos in order from 1-8 to get a comprehensive overview of our school and how to progress through your online course(s).
