Welcome to OntarioLearn hosted by Fanshawe College!

OntarioLearn Logo

Fanshawe is part of a consortium that includes all 24 colleges across Ontario that work together as a dynamic group to develop and deliver flexible, demand-driven online learning. While you would register as a Fanshawe student, your course may be delivered by another college. This partnership approach allows colleges to optimize resources and deliver one of the largest inventories of high-quality online programs and courses in North America. OntarioLearn is a popular choice for people who live in rural and remote areas, who have different learning styles or disabilities, who lead busy lives, working full-time or part-time.

OntarioLearn courses are facilitator-guided and asynchronous online. While there are not any specific days to log on and view a lecture, each course will have a structured schedule available within the course site, with specific deadlines for assignments, tests, etc. By choosing OntarioLearn, you are joining an extensive network of students from across Ontario. We offer flexible, inclusive, accessible and high-quality courses, programs and services.
