eLearn Course Development

The eServices Office is a full-service administrative computing technology unit that provides help to instructors for the creation, development and support of eLearn courses. Please email esohelp@yorku.ca if you are planning on developing an eLearn course, and require assistance.

Fully Online and Blended Courses

Fully Online eLearn courses provide all the academic content and communications to students online and there are no on-campus classes to attend. Courses are structured with weekly readings and assignments that are due on specific dates. All exams are written on-campus, and students residing in remote areas can request to write at their nearest post-secondary institution. Blended courses combine classroom sessions with online components.

Fully Online and Blended courses feature a combination of multimedia (audio/video) and text-based instruction; exciting graphics and web links; and include interactive assignments. They also feature online discussion rooms and provide convenient email access to instructors and on-line course evaluations.

All LA&PS' eLearn courses use the same textbooks, materials, and content as the on-site, in-class courses. They also coincide with the Registrars’ timelines for start/end dates, petitions, financial refunds, etc.

Just as their course instructors will teach them; students can take eLearn courses by using a computer from anywhere in the World*. This allows individuals the ability to do their work either at home, or in a coffee shop - wherever there is an Internet connection.


Students have the opportunity to enrol in various disciplines offered via fully online and blended formats. Choose from a variety of courses to suit your degree needs — while creating a flexible schedule that works for you.

Subjects include:
Administrative Studies, Cultural Studies, Communication Studies, Economics, English, Health Studies, Humanities, Human Resource Management, Human Rights & Equity Studies, Geography, Kinesiology, Nursing, Psychology, Sociology, Social Science, Social Work and Women’s Studies.
