Students at Humber taking an online course are supported through the Open Learning Centre (OLC). The OLC provides non-academic support for Humber’s fully online courses. Currently Humber has an inventory close to 400 courses offered through its various academic areas on a number of different LMS platforms. The OLC staff work with the College's Academic Schools and service areas to ensure Humber's online learners and faculty have a positive and effective learning experience.

The award winning* OLC provides access to education through the use of innovative processes and current technologies that overcome time and boundary constraints. The OLC also offers a number of non-credit courses. For a complete list of the current non-credit and credit online courses, please visit the online learning website for more details.

* In 2009, the OLC was awarded the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE) award for Exemplary Student Services. For more information about the CNIE, please visit http://www.cnie-rcie.ca.
