This submission describes a synchronous model that was developed in an effort to provide quality educational services to secondary students in the Province of Quebec, Canada. The original goal was to develop an online alternative that somewhat resembled the regular brick and mortar system. It was essential that the model provide the support needed for the content heavy Math and Science courses at the senior levels. With Ministry funding research was completed and in 2000 the first online Math 536 course was taught with very positive results. Since that time many changes and additons have been made but the synchronous aspects have always been maintained. The project has been transformed into a foundation and a beacon of excellence for the province providing services to over 100 000 users. The goal is to present the LEARN model and our findings.
