Ontario’s government will spend $42-million establishing a centre that aims to drive new online learning opportunities for university and college students across the province.

The new collaborative Centre of Excellence, dubbed Ontario Online, will be run by colleges and universities as an independent not-for-profit enterprise, and aims to increase options for students to learn online and allow schools to share resources and expertise in online teaching.

It is expected to launch in 2015, featuring a course hub where schools can post and promote their online course offerings in a central list. Participation in the centre will be optional, but all colleges and universities that sign on will be required to give credit for courses approved through the hub no matter which school offers them, and Mr. Duguid expects most will participate.
