LearnNowBC is a key foundation to the British Columbia online and distance learning provision. However, it is an education portal - providing information, advice, guidance and also access to resources - rather than a virtual school or even a Learning Management System.
Its website is http://www.learnnowbc.ca/
There are nearly 60 distributed learning schools listed by LearnNowBC although it is not clear to what degree and in what ways they use technology to support learning. In 2010 there were also 12 independent distributed learning schools in BC. iNACOL reports that there were 71,405 unique students enrolled on one or more courses via distributed learning in BC (up from 33,022 in 2006-07).
