A digital book club and other unique ways that HWCDSB uses Ontario’s VLE

Ontario’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a dynamic learning platform powered by D2L’s Brightspace.

Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB) is the Catholic school board for Hamilton, Ontario, serving students in 48 elementary schools, seven secondary schools, and one adult and continuing education program. “I believe that the VLE is a rich resource of digital tools for all educators and students in Ontario.

It always keeps safety and security at its core and continues to make great strides in all areas.” —Michael Noronha, TELT Contact, HWCDSB
