Online Learning

At A Glance

We offer Senior High students a flexible program to suit their schedules. We offer all the core courses and many complementary courses with built-in flexibility. Most students take one (or more) course(s) with us while attending another high school (WeConnect). We have teachers available on school sites to answer questions, provide individual help with assignments and projects, and to supervise exams. The teachers may also teach lessons, give direction and provide feedback on assessments, all with the purpose of supporting students in their learning. Students complete their course work at their home schools during their WeConnect block, at home, or on trips to other parts of the world.

At RVS Online, every student is given the opportunity to be successful, to create his/her own learning plan, and to receive help and support. Our students realize they control their own learning, and develop work habits to fulfil their own educational goals.

Registration Process

Students must be registered in an RVS High School:

  • The student will be registered through their home school and will be included in the registration process of their home school. (WeConnect program)
  • Once there is administration or guidance approval, the student will be registered in their online course in both Power School and in the Moodle course(s) by the WeConnect coordinator at their home school.

Ensuring Student Success

Typically students who are successful in online courses display the following characteristics:

  • Has the discipline to complete projects by deadlines instead of waiting until the end of the semester.
  • Is motivated to read, write, and participate fully in class activities/projects.
  • Has the ability to work independently and in groups.
  • Is flexible in dealing with technology problems.
  • Is a self-starter and does not procrastinate.
  • Sets aside specific times on a routine basis to 'participate' in the course.
  • Can ask questions when they do not understand.
  • Has good, basic computer skills.
  • Possesses time management skills.

Of course the above isĀ not an exhaustive list - and missing some of these skills does not necessarily indicate that the student will be unsuccessful.

However, it is important to determine whether a student has the pre-requisite skills, knowledge and attitudes to ensure student success.
