Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Virtual Study Help

Virtual Study Help programs help students to stay accountable and build study skills while connecting with their peers online.

Classmate Connect

Classmate Connect is for students seeking a study partner. Learning remotely in large classes can make it challenging to make new connections, and Classmate Connect provides students with the opportunity to find a study partner or study group. Learning with a friend can offer many benefits, including the chance to discuss challenging concepts and hear other perspectives.

How it works

  • Students will complete an online form to share their .net email accounts, which are then added to a faculty-specific repository. Students will be asked to include specific study areas (course names) for the repository.
  • After joining, students will receive an email with a secure link to view other students seeking a study partner.
  • From there, it is up to the student to make contact. Students can find one classmate to study with or create a study group.

Interested students must register in the Classmate Connect program every semester to ensure course help is updated correctly in the database. 

For more information, please contact studentlearning@ontariotechu.ca.
