Ontario post-secondary students can now access thousands of university and college courses over the Internet. A new web portal was created by the province and released on Thursday to give students more flexibility in completing their courses. Ontario is investing $72 million over five years to eCampus Ontario, and 45 publicly-assisted colleges and universities in Ontario are offering courses through the portal. “Students should be excited about eCampus online portal, which gives them the flexibility to access high quality online courses whenever and whenever works best for them,” said Reza Moridi, minister of Training for Colleges and Universities. Moridi said the web portal allows institutions to share best practices and online resources. There are 13,000 online courses including 277 new and redesigned courses with transferable credits between participating institutions.
