Learning Resource Centres

Fleming College's Learning Resource Centres are home to a variety of academic and learning supports designed to promote your success at Fleming. Whether you're entering college directly from high school orhitting the books after spending a number of years in the workforce, the Learning Resource Centres can help you to get your academic career off to the best possible start.

You'll go there to access: learning materials (books, journals, periodicals, cd's, internet access); to book an appointment with a counsellor; to get help with your course work; or to arrange for assistance with a special need or disability.

Regardless of your program, or the campus at which you choose to study, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use the vast array of resources throughout your time at Fleming.

The Learning Resource Centre puts you in charge of your own learning, allowing you to study when and where you choose, using the methods that are best suited to your learning style.

That might mean completing a computer module in the Learning Commons, taking one of the College's growing number of internet-based courses, picking up the materials from a print-based distance education course that you can work on at home, or borrowing materials from the Library to assist with an assignment for a classroom-based course.

Learning Commons & A/V Services

The Learning Commons is an open access, schedule-free computer learning environment that includes 150 multimedia computer stations at Sutherland Campus and 120 similar work stations at Frost Campus. The Learning Commons provides opportunities for guided and self-directed learning and is staffed by technologists and student tutors. It's where you go to work on a computer-based or web-based course, to access your e-mail, work on assignments, conduct research or access software designed to support your program of study. It also contains study rooms for group learning, and areas of comfortable seating. The facilities include scanners, printers, and have full access to the Fleming Wireless Network so you can use your laptop and work at your own pace and learning style.
