About Online Learning
Our Reading and Writing courses are purpose-built for online learning using UBC instructional design resources and tools.

Online courses are hosted on the intuitive learning management platform Canvas. Every week, your instructor releases a new module or lesson. Each lesson might include materials such as class notes, readings, links to articles, videos and practice exercises. You may also be asked to post on discussion boards and submit assignments.

Your instructor is there to provide you feedback on your work, and guide online forum discussions. Some may hold virtual office hours. You can also communicate with your instructor through Canvas.

Expect to spend two to three hours per week on your course – you do get out what you put in! You can log in anytime day or night. Some courses, however, might include exercises and assignments with deadlines. Materials will be available for two weeks after the course ends, after which time you will no longer be able to access the course.

We will send you instructions on accessing Canvas before your first class.
