REMEMBER: Your mailed work arrives in Winkler and is then forwarded by mail to your Tutor/Marker who in turn needs time to mark your work. The Distance Learning Unit will then create your report card and other records. The use of Xpresspost envelopes is recommended as it provides the ability to track your assignment and guarantees quicker mail service. Or, upload your assignments through the Learning Management System (LMS) to reduce mailing time and expenses. Registered students were issued a username and password at the time of registration. Students requiring the username and password information to be resent may contact distance.learning@gov.mb.ca.
