How does online study work?

Online learning is a form of teacher-led, independent, student-paced study that offers an alternative to  courses offered in a traditional classroom setting. You study from home or anywhere you can have  access to the Internet. Instruction and most tests and assignments are conducted online, via email. A few  ACE courses may require a supervised final exam. In most cases, you upload completed assignments  directly to the course site. All you need is reliable access to a computer with an internet connection. Your ACE Distance teacher and program advisor are available for academic support and consultation online. They will respond within 24 hours (weekdays).

Technical support is also available to you 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Is there anything I need to do before registering for an ACE Distance course?

We care about your success and are committed to providing you with high quality online courses and  support to enable you to reach your goal. To maximize your chances of success, you must complete the
ESEE assessment and meet our course entry standards and successfully complete the Learn to Learn  course as an orientation to ACE Distance learning.

How do I register for ACE Distance courses?

Tuition-free registration takes place in January, March, April, June,  September and November.  Before  registering for ACE Distance courses you must have completed the Consent and Participant Information  Form and Learn to Learn.  It is your responsibility to register at the college of your choice.  Marla White-Ranger  and the Learn to Learn staff are not able to register you.  You will receive detailed directions and contact  information at the end of Learn to Learn about registering for an ACE Distance course.

If I'm taking an ACE course that requires a textbook, where do I get this book?

Textbooks are provided free of charge to students in the tuition-free sessions. Students must contact Marla White-Ranger to arrange for texts.  Once you are enrolled in your ACE Distance course please email Marla White-Ranger at marlawhite75@gmail.com and provide the following information: the name of the ACE course, your address and your phone number. Marla will arrange to have your e-text sent to you. You don't need the textbook to get started. All courses have been designed to allow you to get going immediately.

Is there a limit to the number of ACE Distance courses I can take?

Courses vary from 80 to 120 hours in length. Most courses are 120 hours long and require a minimum of  10 hours per week of study. To maximize your success and to avoid overloading yourself, you are only allowed to register in one course at a time. Once you have completed your first course, you can enrol in another course. You may enrol in as many courses as you require, but you may only participate in one course at any one time. If you are unsuccessful you will not be allowed to take another course for free.

Remember to set realistic goals based on the number of hours you can devote to your studies each  week. John Lennon once said that life is what happens while we’re busy making other plans; you need to  plan how you will deal with family, health, personal, and job-related issues that may arise.

What courses do I need to get my ACE Certificate?

In order to qualify for your ACE Certificate (Grade 12 equivalent) you need to complete the following:

Upon completion, you will can apply to the registrar’s office at your enrolling college to receive an ACE  Certificate. The Certificate identifies the college where you registered and is signed by the appropriate  senior management representative. You may also request an official transcript from the registering  college when you have successfully completed the program.

Do I need to complete all the courses required to achieve the ACE Certificate to get into the college program of my choice?

Not necessarily. Many students only take the courses they need to meet the prerequisites for admission  to further education. If you are applying to college as a mature student, you only need to complete the  stated prerequisite courses to be considered for admission to that program.

Check and confirm the admission requirements and prerequisites of the postsecondary programs at  each college where you’re applying. These can vary, and you don’t want any unexpected surprises when  it comes to decision time. Prepare yourself for success by ensuring you are enrolling in the courses required by the program and college of your choice.

How long does it typically take to complete an ACE Distance course?

You are allowed a maximum of 22 weeks to complete each course. This is assuming you can devote an  average of 10 hours per week to your studies. Depending on the number of hours you study a week and  your motivation, you may complete in less time.

What is ESEE?

The three parts of the Essential Skills for Employment and Education (ESEE) is an assessment  requirement that must be completed within five days. Take the assessment very seriously as it will  determine your entrance into ACE courses. Be sure to do the assessment in a quiet place where you can concentrate. You will only be allowed one opportunity to take the assessment. If you score 226 or  greater on the Reading Portion, you will be able to complete L2L. If you score between 225 and 250 you  will have to take the six week Communications Support course once you complete Learn to Learn. Once  you successfully complete Comm Support, your name will be added to the Approval List for ACE  Distance Courses. Those who score 225 or less are referred to one of our partner programs for remedial  upgrading. After six months of upgrading and approval from the partner program instructor, students  may return for another attempt at ACE courses.

How long does it take to get assignments marked?

Assignments are generally marked within 48 hours. During high volume time, it may take a bit longer to  mark assignments.

ACE Distance courses are delivered through OntarioLearn. Since OntarioLearn courses start at the  beginning of each month, try to submit all assignments within the first three weeks of the month. This  ensures that your assignments have enough time to be completed, corrected if necessary, and graded  with a pass. Students who have not completed L2L by the end of the month will have to wait until the  next approved intake.

When are the Registration Dates for ACE Distance Courses?

ACE Distance is part of the OntarioLearn system. Students register through their enrolling college  according to the system they have in place. Some colleges have Student Information Systems that can  enroll a student in advance of the intake and carry the registration forward. Others have systems which  only open up one month before the course start date. When you complete L2L contact the individual at  your enrolling college to register. They will be able to provide you with complete information about  their registration process.

Although classes start on the first business day of the month, registration continues during the first  week. If you are late in registering it is YOUR responsibility to make sure you have your User ID and  password and log in within the first 10 days of the course.

When are free intakes available?

Free intakes for ACE Distance courses are in January, March, April, June, September, and November.  Students can only take 1 course at a time so planning is essential. Students must meet the entry  standard for each ACE course.

ACE Distance courses are free to Ontario residents who are 19 years or older and is dependent on funding. Students are provided with one free opportunity to complete an ACE Distance course and can  continue taking courses as long as they are passing. If a student fails a course or drops out of a course  and wishes to return they must do so as a fee payer. It is important to choose your courses carefully and  be realistic about the time you can devote to school to ensure you succeed.

How do I put my name on the approved list for free ACE Distance courses?

Because of budget constraints, we have to limit the number of students we can enrol in each free intake  of ACE Distance programming.

1. Tuition free intakes for ACE Distance courses are available in January, March, April, June, September, and November.

2. Restricting intakes only applies to high demand courses -Core Math, Biology and Communications.

What do you need to do to get your name on the approved list?

1. Complete Learn to Learn (L2L).

2. Meet the entry standard required for admission to your choice of ACE courses.

3. If you have met the entry standard and your next step is enrolling in Core Math, Communications, or  Biology, you will be placed on the approved list when you complete L2L. Placement is on a first come  first served basis.

4. Your name and course will be sent to your choice of enrolling college.


Why do I need a course outline?

Every ACE course has a course outline. You should print and keep a copy of the course outline for your reference and future use. Often employers and educational institutions want to know the outcomes you  have achieved and the material you have covered.

How do I transfer from college-based ACE classroom study to ACE Distance?

Often students’ personal and employment situations change, and they are no longer able to participate  in classroom-based delivery. Consequently we have established a process which enables students to  transfer the work they have done in class to their distance course in order to complete the subject and  achieve their academic goals. Talk to your classroom teacher to discuss whether registering for an ACE  Distance course is suitable for you. You don’t have to start the course again. We can transfer your  current grades to the ACE Distance teacher. If you and your classroom teacher decide that transferring  to ACE Distance is best for you, contact Stephanie Balsdon at sbalsdonl2l@gmail.com to start the  process. The following outlines the process which must be followed.

1. The student must complete Learn to Learn (L2L) in order to enroll in an ACE Distance course.

2. In order to arrange for the transferring of grades, it is critical that students provide the following  information as soon as possible:

3. This information should be forwarded to Stephanie Balsdon at sbalsdonl2l@gmail.com

4. Once Stephanie has received this information, she will arrange for the classroom and distance  teachers to connect to discuss the student’s progress and grades and make sure all the data is  transferred to the ACE Distance grade sheet.

5. If a student is in pre ACE level programming, there will be nothing to transfer. If the student passes  the intake assessment in Learn to Learn, s/he is welcome to register in an ACE Distance

6. We are only able to arrange the transferring of grades within the college system. If a student is  transferring from a school board program to a college program, any transfer of progress must be done by representatives of the two programs.

7. FINAL STEP: Once students have completed L2L, they must register for the ACE Distance course at the college they have selected. Students must complete this final step. Learn to Learn teachers are not able to do this for students.

If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Balsdon at sbalsdonl2l@gmail.com

If you are enrolling in a tuition-free intake of ACE Distance (January, March, April, June, September, November) there will be no charge and your textbook will be provided.

How do I transfer from ACE Distance to college-based, in-class learning?

Online learning is not everyone`s cup of tea. If you prefer classroom learning, ACE courses are available  free of charge at all 24 colleges across Ontario. At last count, ACE programming was available in more than 75 communities across the province. To find out where in-class ACE courses are available in your area, contact the college(s) closest to you: click here.

Learn to Learn consists of assessments and assignments designed to determine if you have the necessary personal, computer and academic skills as well as the confidence to successfully participate in ACE Distance courses. Students who do not have the necessary skills may be referred to other online  and classroom-based programs which will meet their immediate needs.

You will need to have your own email address.

It is important to create an address which is appropriate and professional. Use at least part of your name in the email address. This helps us to identify you and makes corresponding with you much more efficient. You may not use someone else's email address.

When creating an academic email address registering as janedoe@gmail.com or jane@gmail.com is  acceptable. Choosing an email address such as sexymomma@gmail.com is not appropriate. You may  choose to use this type of email address for your personal email but we will not register students who  do not provide us with an appropriate academic email address.

There are many free email providers on the Internet. You can sign up for a free email account at Gmail,  Hotmail, and Yahoo, but there are many others. To find out how to sign up for your email address,  search the Internet for the email provider of your choice and follow their instructions.

Essential Skills Assessment Policy

Students enrolled in Learn to Learn will be asked to complete the Essential Skills assessment to  determine the student’s level in Reading, Document Use, and Numeracy. Students who score less than  225 will be referred to one of our partner agencies while those who score less than 250 in the Reading  portion of the assessment will be required to take the Communications Support course before they will  be permitted to enroll in ACE courses.  Students who score less than 250 on the Numeracy Assessment  must complete the Numeracy Support course. In instances where a student requires both courses,  Communications Support must be completed before moving on to Numeracy Support.

Students who are referred to Communications Support are required to complete the course. They must  then re-write the Reading portion of the ACE Essential Skills test and score a minimum of 250 to be allowed to enroll in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Communications and all Math courses. Students scoring below this level will not be adequately prepared to read the complex materials ACE Science and  Communications courses require nor will they be able to read, decipher and understand word problems  in the math courses.

A student scoring at least 226 on the ACE Essential Skills reading component will be allowed to enroll for  Self Management & Self Direction and/or Computers but may not progress to other ACE courses until their reading score is at the 250 level.  Students requiring more assistance will be referred to another agency in order to strengthen their reading skills and may return to ACE Distance at a later date. 

Students with a documented learning or other disability may be exempt from this requirement. For more information please contact Stephanie Balsdon at sbalsdonl2l@gmail.com.

ACE Distance faculty members have reviewed the relationship between Essential Skills components and performance in ACE Distance courses.  As a result we are currently using the following ES scores as our  entry standard.  We will be reviewing these in the next month against the performance of students in  our September 2013 intake which ends February 2nd to see if we need to make adjustments.

ACE Distance Course ES Score Required

You have 30 days to complete the L2L course.

Please do not sign up for the course if you know that you will not have access to a computer and the  Internet during this 30 day period.
