About Laurentian Online
Laurentian Online was launched in August 2016 and represents an amalgamation of the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE)’s Envision Program and the Faculty of Management’s Virtual Campus. Laurentian Online is part of the Teaching and Learning with Technology unit in the Centre for Academic Excellence.
Building on more than 40 years of online and distance education at Laurentian University, Laurentian Online is combining the experience and knowledge-base of the Centre for Continuing Education (which has been offering courses and programs in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Health disciplines since 1972) with the Faculty of Management’s Virtual Campus which has been offering online business degree programs since 2004.
Laurentian Online will continue to offer courses and programs, which are student–centered, and challenge students to develop their independent learning skills, expand their online research capabilities, and demonstrate excellence in academic writing.
Laurentian University’s federated universities also offer their own programming, in collaboration with Laurentian Online, as follows:
