Questions About Education Distance Online Learning
Q: My son has a ground breaking opportunity for his school district. The principal has given him the go ahead to pursue classes via the internet for high school/college credit, I mean learning online for high school/college credit. Are there some school districts currently doing this? Does the school district cover the expense of the course? What are some recommended links/colleges - especially any that students at your schools have worked with and found beneficial.
A: There is school district that registered five students this trimester in online courses (high school credit only) Administrators were willing to try the courses to see if it is a viable alternative to overfilled courses, AP coursework, ESL, early graduation, etc. We are using two schools Class.com (www.class.com) which I feel does an excellent job with course design using multimedia. The second school is Keystone National High School (www.keystonehighschool.com) The school district is paying for the courses and will continue when there is a hardship as mentioned above.
