Post-secondary online courses

More and more online courses are available all the time. A number of consortiums, similar to eCourses Manitoba, post the online courses from a variety of institutions. If your home institution is not a member of the consortium, you can browse these websites to identify courses of interest. To transfer credit for these courses back to your home institution, you will need to request a Letter of Permission using your home institution's regular process. Contact your academic advisor to help determine if courses will work in your academic plan.

  • Canadian Virtual University - University of Manitoba is a member of CVU. Therefore, UManitoba students may be eligible to acquire a letter of permission through CVU. 
  • Ontario - Study Online - Distance and online courses from Ontario universities and colleges
  • eCampus Ontario - More information on online learning with Ontario universities and colleges


As well, some post-secondary institutions offer a wide variety of online courses. These include:


There are also a number of online courses that you can take for interest's sake and not for credit. Open access courses, popularized as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), are an emerging model of education in which noncredit courses are delivered through the internet to a vast number of students.
