HOW DOES ONLINE LEARNING WORK?
Once you register through our website, you will have 24/7 access to your online course. Use your username login and password to access the learning management system. Then, at a pace suitable to your learning, you can progress through the interactive lessons, and practice quizzes. When you are ready you can complete the unit evaluations and submit them into the drop box for your teacher to evaluate and provide feedback. All unit evaluations are completed and submitted online. You can type out your answers, do them on paper and scan them or take a picture of your handwritten work as submission of the evaluations, whatever means you are comfortable with. After you receive a grade and feedback, you can then proceed to the next unit and so forth until the course is complete. At the mid-point in the course, you will get your first report card, and upon completion of the remaining units and the proctored final exam you will be mailed a final report card.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DO AN ONLINE COURSE?
One of the greatest features of online learning is the flexibility it provides in allowing you to customize your schedule to complete the course at your own pace. Course progress is measured on the completion of the assignments, discussions and summative evaluations. You can login to your course and learn at home any time and at any pace. Students are eligible to write the final exam after completing the minimal number of hours. For example: studying a few hours a day will enable you to complete the course in just four weeks. If you require a slower pace you can take up to 12 months to complete a course.
CAN I TAKE A COURSE IN THE SUMMER?
Yes, all courses are available year-round, meaning you can register and start anytime! During July and August, all new registrations are eligible to complete in as little as 21 days (as opposed to the standard 30 days minimum completion the other 10 months of the year!)
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
Please note that there are no refunds. Students can however request in writing to transfer to another available course within 7 days of their initial registration provided that they have not attempted any of the course evaluations and that they have the prerequisite for the course they wish to transfer into.
WHAT IS A PROCTORED FINAL EXAM?
Some courses require students to write a final exam at the end of the course. This exam must be written in the presence of an approved proctor either in-person at the OVS office or offsite. A proctor is a professional (teacher, doctor, lawyer, accountant, etc) who meets with the student to witness the test or final exam being written and confirms that all procedures outlined by the teacher were properly followed. The date, time, place, and proctor for a student’s final exam are selected by the student but must be approved by the OVS office.

Option 1: With a Proctor
The student may arrange their own proctor to meet with them in person for the purpose of invigilating the test or exam. This is written at a time, place and location that is most comfortable and safe for the student. Students will need to provide the teacher with their proposed proctors professional email address and phone number. This will need to be done at least 3 days in advance of the planned exam date. When the proctor is approved, the proctor will be provided with detailed exam instructions and proctor form via email. The approved proctor and student may then proceed with the final exam as scheduled. Once the final exam has been written, the proctor must send the test or exam back to the teacher as a scanned, clearly legible document. If a student chooses a proctor who charges a fee for their services, the student is responsible for those or any other expenses.

Option 2: Written at any Megamind location
The student may choose to write the final exam at any Megamind location. All students need to do is contact the chief educator of your location to make the arrangements.
WILL OVS SEND MY MARKS TO OUAC/OCAS AND MY DAY SCHOOL?
Yes, we can send marks directly to OUAC, OCAS, and your day school. Just make sure to provide your OUAC/OCAS number when you request your report card. There is no extra charge for this service.
CAN I STILL TAKE AN ONLINE CREDIT COURSE AS A REGULAR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT?
Absolutely... Students do not require permission from their regularly attended day school or school board to take any course. When you have successfully finished the course, a copy of the report card will be forwarded to your day school, who will add this credit to your ongoing transcript. Upon request, the marks can be forwarded to Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC) at no additional charge.
