Course Formats

Coquitlam Open Learning offers three types of learning environments, allowing you to choose the course format that works best for you:

Online (Continual Entry) – Students may register at any time from September to July. These courses are delivered completely online with the majority of student-teacher communication using online tools, such as email and chat.

Learning Centre (Continual Entry) – These courses are offered at our drop in centre CLOC, the Coquitlam Learning Opportunity Centre (map), near Coquitlam Center.  Learning Centre courses allow students to enter at any point during the year and are self-paced. Depending on the course and student preference, these courses could be either online or paper-based.

Fast Track (Online Blended) – These courses will have specific start dates and you will need to attend some regularly scheduled classes, with most of the course being completed online. Students will be required to travel to specific schools for face-to-face sessions. For days, times and locations, please see the course outlines or our most recent course catalog. The face-to-face classes will be used for seminars, group discussions, labs, and extra support.

You must be registered with Coquitlam Open Learning in order to sign up for courses. Please register here.
