Course Delivery Options

Course​ Access

For online courses, students will login to Blackboard using their WebAdvisor username and password. Course access instructions can be found online at Learning Integrations & Training: E-Learning. Access will normally be provided 1 to 2 business days prior to the course start date.

Online Courses

There are many advantages to completing courses in this environment: flexible hours in completing course work, interactive discussion boards, and chat rooms that allow you to communicate with educators across the province and beyond. Students develop a much broader awareness of issues and practices in education on a provincial, national, and global scale.

Blackboard Learn is an easy-to-use, interactive browser-based learning management system that enables candidates to communicate with professors and peers, as well as complete and submit work online, from any computer with an Internet connection.

Students do not require prior online course experience in order to successfully complete a Blackboard course successfully. For more information please visit Learning Integrations & Training: E-Learning

On-site and Blended (Partial Distance)

On-site courses are delivered by face-to-face classroom delivery.

On-site courses are usually held on Nipissing campuses or at easily accessible schools in areas across the province. On-site courses are subject to minimum enrolments and these may vary by location.

In some situations, courses may be offered through a blended format, which means a combination of on-site and on-line delivery.

On-site and blended courses are offered in regions throughout Ontario and may include areas such as: Brantford/Waterloo, York region, Simcoe County, Muskoka, North Bay, East and West Parry Sound, Ottawa, Renfrew County, Sudbury, Manitoulin Island, Sault Ste. Marie/Algoma, and Timmins.

Use of Literature

Assignments should be grounded in appropriate, adequate, and timely academic literature.

Clarity and Logic of Presentation

Assignments should present ideas in a clear manner and with a strong organizational structure. Coverage of facts, arguments, and conclusions should be logically related and consistent.

The rules governing the grammar and usage of standard Canadian English must be followed, and language should be clear, precise, and appropriate for the intended scholarly audience. When formatting and composing assignments, including citations and reference pages, learners must follow the guidelines described in the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

Learners should refer to the APA manual as a guide for applying APA style appropriately and consistently.
