We have a very high degree of customization across the board in our asynchronous Moodle LMS. Move from WebCT to Moodle in 2011-2012. All of these adaptations were developed in division by our programmers and integrated to assist our teachers in their day-to-day Moodle responsibilities, as well as improve the communication between home and school. These enhancements have created a better learning experience for our online students.
Automatic Bi-Weekly Grade Reporting Sends a snapshot every two weeks to students, parents, teachers Midterms – at day 75 – get sent to our in-division schools for their records

Monthly CIF’s (Continuous Improvement Framework) It is easy for us / our teachers to become complacent in our LMS, so we introduce a new CIF about every month, which is set up to incorporate better learning practices into our courses. It also helps us challenge our teachers and keep them ‘on their toes’ so to speak. It’s good to get them out of their comfort zone. These skills carry over into their face-to-face schools.
What we offer: Hybrid Courses The courses can support or be used as the actual course in a face to face classroom. www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/hybrid www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/hybrid Credit Recovery a program to allow students on the bubble to get the marks they need in the specific unit(s) of a class to get a credit for the overall class. http://www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/creditrecov/http://www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/creditrecov/ Summer School We can offer any of our classes for students anywhere in the province during July and August. No need to be tied to a face-to-face school. Students can still vacation at the cottage, or keep that summer job! http://www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/summer/http://www.scs.sk.ca/cyber/summer/
