New Resource for Douglas College Students! Online Learning at Douglas College: Getting Started

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Learning Centre is temporarily operating online only. Questions can be directed to our email.

English is the primary language of instruction at the college and the Learning Centre. However, the Learning Centre is a multilingual centre and being able to offer our services and resources in multiple languages is conducive to our goal of helping students learn and become better learners. 

Tutoring: Languages available for tutoring sessions are listed in the tutor's bio when booking an appointment at douglas.mywconline.com.  
Resources: The Learning Centre website as well as many of our resources can be translated using the Google Translate button at the top left corner of this site.
