Nova Scotia Supported Online Study updates the offerings of our traditional Correspondence Studies Program to take advantage of online technologies for learning. Through, NS SOS we offer online public school courses that you can start at any time and complete at your own pace. These courses are designed according to the Public School Program which defines the learning outcomes that must be achieved to obtain a credit. Each course has been carefully designed to provide learners with online supports including: examples, illustrations, video, self-assessments… in an easy to navigate environment. NS SOS courses, like Correspondence Studies Program course offerings do not provide for full teaching, instead there is a marker who will provide feedback on work submitted. In addition, there is online tutoring available in some courses.
