Applications for Second Round Virtual Learning Strategy funding are now open
Building on an initial investment of $50 million in virtual learning in January 2021, an additional $8 million will now be made available by eCampusOntario through this Second Round of the VLS. $7 million is available through the EOIs launched on November 4.
Originally announced on December 11, 2020, the VLS is an historic investment by the Ontario Ministry Colleges and Universities intended to drive growth and advancement in virtual learning across the province’s postsecondary institutions. Throughout 2021, eCampusOntario supported the funding of over 395 projects led by Ontario’s publicly assisted postsecondary institutions. These projects, which will be completed by March 2022, are significantly expanding options for traditional and life-long learning through the accelerated use of both online and hybrid learning.
Building on the successes of the inaugural funding, the Second Round continues to expand the capacity and quality of virtual learning in Ontario’s postsecondary education sector.
