Distance Learning

Planning for Distance Learning

Schools and learners in some Manitoba communities, particularly those located in rural and northern areas, face a number of challenges such as low student enrolment and shortages of teachers with specific subject expertise. Despite these challenges, schools endeavour to provide learners with a range of course offerings that enable them to meet graduation requirements, explore areas of interest, and meet specific needs.

Distance learning is a means of accessing courses of study even though learners and their teachers, instructors, or tutor/markers may be in different geographic locations. Distance learning provides flexibility and equitable access to diverse learning opportunities, while at the same time respecting local community decisions regarding educational programming.
