  • Is online learning for me?

    Online learning requires more independence and motivation than other courses as you will work remotely from other students and your instructor. By scheduling time regularly to work on your online courses, you can succeed! Online courses also require that you have regular access to a computer with the Internet.

  • Why eCourses?

    Hundreds of courses. Seven institutions. One website. Now, students can access hundreds of Manitoba’s online courses in one place.

    There is more good news! You can save up to $150.00 per course! Our partners have agreed to waive the fees for the Letter of Permission and visiting student application when you use this website to find their online courses.

    Using this website also makes it easy to find transfer information.

  • How are courses delivered?

    Most of our courses are delivered online through a learning management system (LMS) at the university or college where the course is offered. Online courses commonly include videos, shared files and articles, discussion forums, and quizzes. Some require textbooks. Assignments are submitted online through the LMS and you receive feedback and grades the same way. If you don’t know how to find the LMS for your course, check out this article. We also have more information about how exams work for online courses.

  • Campus Manitoba prior to May 2014

    If you took courses from Campus Manitoba prior to May 2014, you may find that the instructions in this Help Centre are similar to, but not quite the same as, the former process. To take a new course through the eCampus Manitoba website, you should create a new account and follow the process on How It Works. Your account on the old website did not transfer to this site. If you have questions about courses that you took prior to May 2014, please contact the Virtual Help Desk for assistance.
