Committed to the Evolution of Teaching and Learning

eCampusOntario, a not-for-profit corporation, is funded by the Government of Ontario to be a centre of excellence in online and technology-enabled learning for all publicly-funded colleges and universities in Ontario.

Our mandate:

Support the development and delivery of quality online learning experiences across all of Ontario.

Lead in research, development and sharing of exemplary practices in online and other forms of technology-enabled learning.

Support member institutions in fostering innovation, collaboration, and excellence on behalf of Ontario students and faculty.

Contribute to the evolution of teaching and learning by responding to emerging tech and the development of state-of-the art online courses and programs.

A message from our CEO

eCampusOntario has embarked on a bold mission to widen access to post-secondary education and training in Ontario. The organization is succeeding in turning this vision into reality with the help of technology-enabled learning strategy that makes programs and courses from our 45 member institutions easy to find and consider before learners apply and register for classes.

Our open textbook library provides access to free learning resources in a wide range of subject areas. These open textbooks can be assigned by instructors for their classes and they can be downloaded by learners to mobile devices, or printed on demand at a nominal cost. These free and open educational resources are customizable to meet a wide range of learning needs, and we invite instructors to review and adopt the resources for use in their courses.

We also support post-secondary educators throughout Ontario with workshops, conferences and resources. Everything we do at eCampusOntario is grounded in the belief that the impact on learning should be the primary motivator for creating technology-enabled and online learning experiences. Through our funding and professional programs, we aim to empower educators to explore a range of emerging technologies and pedagogical practices for effective online and technology-enabled teaching and learning.
