Our Remote Learning Program

Our Lady of Fatima Excellence Academy offers remote learning by way of distance learning, in which the student, teacher, and learning environment are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment. Classes and learning activities such as discussion boards, video conferencing, and online assessments are conducted through technology. Depending on the lesson, remote learning can occur synchronously with real-time peer-to-peer interaction and collaboration, or asynchronously, with self-paced learning activities that takes place self-reliantly but within a teacher’s instructions.

CANVAS LMS is the technological platform used for remote learning, class & lesson information, study resources, library collections, materials, news, communication, transmissions, grades, and mores. Students will need to demonstrate technological skills to participate in remote learning. Information on school and course notices, announcements & events are provided. Lessons and learning activities are posted, conducted, submitted, tracked, and graded in the CANVAS platform.
