Started in 2015 by Hanadi Alnawab, Program Coordinator of the Digital Business Management – Bachelor of Commerce program at Humber College, Humber Online Solutions is an experiential learning initiative aimed at providing current Humber students from various programs the opportunity to work with the industry. Using Humber resources, and under the supervision of Humber faculty, students work in multidisciplinary teams with small businesses in Ontario to develop and optimize the businesses’ online presence.

Students can either work on a project as part of a course assignment for academic credits, or can join the team as Research Assistants and add this experience to their co-curricular record.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic presented us with the opportunity to expand our virtual initiatives by shifting our focus to building digital fluency and developing the next generation of skills needed to adapt to a digital future.
