Welcome to The Virtual School: Your #1 Resource for e-Learning Info in Ontario


    Taking courses online is quite different from taking courses in a physical classroom, so it’s important for students to understand what habits will allow them to be their most successful, and what support systems exist to help them succeed.

    To give you a better picture of what you can expect from e-learning, we will explore answers to questions such as:

  • What is it like to take an online course?
  • What do students enjoy most about taking online courses?
  • What challenges might you face in your online course?
  • How do you know if online learning is right for you?
  • What are the characteristics of successful online learners?
  • What should I do to prepare myself for online learning?


    As a parent, your primary desire is to see your child succeed and to support them in whatever way you can. At MVS, we understand the struggle to negotiate your child's transition into the foreign realm of online courses and are here to help.

    We will help you better understand the factors you should consider before taking this important step, answering questions such as:

  • What do students like about taking online courses?
  • What challenges do students face in their online courses?
  • How do you know if online learning is right for your child?
  • What are the characteristics of successful online learners?
  • How can you help your child prepare for online learning?
  • What kinds of questions should you ask your online learning provider?


    Administrators are the first line of leadership in any school and, as such, are expected to have a solid grasp of the options available to their students. But for many brick-and-mortar administrators, the alternate pathways e-learning are not immediately clear.

    MVS is here to arm you with the knowledge you need to best advise your students. We will help you answer questions such as:

  • What is online learning?
  • What differences exist in an online learning environment?
  • Why are students choosing online learning?
  • What is the administrator’s role in online learning?
  • What are some common misconceptions about online learning?
  • How does one establish and maintain a successful online learning program?
