Flexible Delivery: 

Northern Collaborative Project

This program is a part of a collaboration between northern Ontario’s six publicly-funded colleges, which provides increased student access and flexibility through common curriculum and course outlines. The program shares faculty among the colleges and students may be instructed through a combination of classroom delivery on location, online and/or through a virtual classroom.



How Northern Colleges Collaboration Programs Work

Your classes include professors and students from other partner colleges, brought together in a virtual classroom. All students will join classes through web-conferencing software using a computer, laptop or mobile device with a headset or earbuds with a microphone. Classes will be delivered at scheduled times (synchronous delivery) and will be recorded for later review. To allow for flexibility, students may join classes at the college or anywhere you have connectivity. Students will have access to college services at the college where they register.
