Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is pleased to partner with the Ontario Online Learning Consortium/Consortium ontarien pour l'apprentissage en ligne (OOLC/COAEL) on the launch of the new web portal.

The portal provides Ontario post-secondary students with access to thousands of accredited online college and university courses, resulting in greater flexibility for course completion. UOIT currently offers 108 courses through the portal, as well as the following fully online programs:

“Making University of Ontario Institute of Technology courses available through the eCampus Ontario portal opens up our program offerings to a greater number of students,” said Brad MacIsaac, Registrar. “We recognize that each student’s needs are different; as a result, we have designed many of our programs to accommodate flexible schedules through distance learning, part-time or full-time study, and multiple program start dates. Offering our courses through eCampus Ontario is another way to bring additional anytime/anyplace learning options to students who are looking for this kind flexibility.”

In addition to more than 13,000 online courses, the portal features:

  • A searchable catalogue of courses offered online.
  • Access to 277 new and redesigned courses with transferable credits between participating institutions.
  • Features that easily and immediately identify credit-transfer information.
  • Support and resources for faculty on how to design and deliver online courses.

The portal will continue to be updated and enhanced to improve functionality including more extensive course and program information, greater personalization and expanded student services.
