OntarioLearn

Take online courses at your convenience and earn college credits towards Conestoga programs with OntarioLearn.

Courses delivered through OntarioLearn are a collection of shared online college courses. In collaboration with all 24 of Ontario community colleges, you have 24/7 access to a broad selection of online programs, courses and services.

Once you register at Conestoga for an OntarioLearn course, you can expect to receive an email 1-2 weeks prior to the course start date outlining important details on how to successfully navigate your course.

Important notes to remember

  • Student accounts will be activated for the start date of your course; you cannot start the course until the official start date.
  • If you register within one week of the course start date please be aware that it may take 48 - 72 hours for your account to be activated after your registration is processed.
  • Although your instructor may be from another college, you are registered at Conestoga College and must abide by our Academic Policies. Please contact Conestoga for any issues or concerns other than the course content that only the instructor can answer.
  • Keep a copy of course materials that you submit on the course site, as well as a copy of the course outline/syllabus and grades. You may need it for future reference if you wish to appeal your grade or need to transfer the course credit.

Before your course start date:

  • Purchase required textbooks or materials. We recommend that the purchasing of course resources does not happen until 1-2 weeks prior as there may be revisions up until that time.

Important Facts

  • Email is the primary way the college and your facilitator will interact with you. It is important that your email in your Conestoga Portal and your OntarioLearn Portal profile are correct.
  • If you plan to complete your course on your workplace computer, check with your IT department as some companies will have a firewall in place to prevent downloads. If you encounter any technical difficulties accessing your course after the start date, please contact OntarioLearn Technical Support.
