Virtual Schools: A Method of Education That's Becoming More of a RealityMay 22, 2006 | Diane Demee-Benoit
More than twenty states now have statewide online-education initiatives, primarily virtual high school courses. As more states see online classes as a way to provide access to curriculum, it's even more critical that we look closely at the quality of the various offerings.
GLEF covered the story of online learning last spring. Through an in-depth multimedia presentation featuring videos, interviews, and reports, we compared how various online-learning pioneers are tackling the challenge of providing high-quality online courses.
Since that time, Learning Point Associates has published an updated report, " Keeping Pace with K-12 Online Learning: A Review of State-Level Policy and Practice," which should be of interest to those of you interested in virtual schools.
