Ontario provides at last some system-wide data about completion rates, putting to bed the lie about online courses always having high drop-out rates. The Ontario completion rates also suggest that the quality of online learning is consistently strong throughout their institutions (or that their students are particularly determined). This is probably the most significant statistical study on online learning in Canada. It provides an important baseline for future studies. It shows that Ontario has a very lively, extensive and effective online education scene. It provides an essential baseline for the development of the Ontario Online Institute. And lastly, it’s really nice to report some good news on a very cold snowy day that is all too familiar to Ontarians, but quite unexpected in Vancouver at the end of February.
