The Online Advantage



A course taken from Revelation Online High School program is very similar to any course that you may take in a regular classroom. You still have:

  • A teacher who you can contact to ask questions of
  • Students you can discuss the topics with
  • Projects to work on
  • Assignments to complete
  • Quizzes and Tests
  • Notes
  • Textbooks and resources
  • A schedule of due dates

So what is the difference then?

Revelation is different because our school is open 24 hours a day and can be accessed from anywhere you have a computer and internet connection. The flexibility this gives you in completing your coursework provides a freedom that is necessary if you have a hectic schedule, cannot fit in all your courses in your timetable or just wish to take a course in an online format. A course from Revelation provides you with the same learning opportunities and the same expectations found in your regular classroom except that the classroom is not on the internet. You are working in a much more independent fashion. The skills you learn while learning online will greatly enhance your overall learning strategies and skills. Not only do we provide you the opportunity to access your courseware 24 hours per day, we also can provide you with varied learning activities including access to different web sites, use of technology to complete assignments, interaction with guest speakers via our videoconferencing sessions and a whole host of other educational activities.

Advantage to Revelation courses!

All Revelation courses are accredited high school courses. They are no different than any course you would take at your current high school and are for credit. However, Revelation does have one additional advantage over any course you are currently taking at your high school - the online component.

Over 13 post-secondary institutes in this province currently use the same online delivery software that Revelation uses. This means that students who take an online course will be able to move into the same learning environment that they would be participating in during their additional learning years.

All online courses are designed that you will meet your instructor at least once in person. You will meet your teacher at the beginning of the semester. Some of our courses will require that you meet your teacher more than once. However, this does not mean you will never be in contact with them. There are several methods that your teacher will be able to use to get in touch with you:

  • A learning log you will complete and send to your teacher once a week
  • You can contact your teacher via phone at anytime. 
  • Office hours that are established by your teacher
  • Using the chat tool in D2L
  • Using the audio communication tools
  • Via email
  • Using the discussion groups
  • Meeting with your teacher at a location that is convenient to both you and your teacher

Your teacher will help to facilitate the learning. In other words, he sets the deadlines, provides you with the materials and pathways to learning. You, as a student, are then responsible for completing the tasks. If you do so before the deadline date then you have free time to concentrate and focus on other things.

Revelation Online High School program is available wherever you have an internet connection and a computer. We have had students who have traveled across the world but have brought with them a computer to hook up to the net with. Although this poses problems with meeting with your teacher, it does not mean you cannot complete your materials or still be able to discuss things with them via email or the net.

Revelation's goal is to help students complete High School. Since our classroom is a virtual classroom, we can provide you with online courses via your computer. If you are involved in extracurricular activities or have planned a family trip that requires you to miss school or alter your timetable, then Revelation may be a solution for you.
