Using Technology to Expand Opportunity: Going Virtual
Fox, Christine
T.H.E. Journal, v33 n12 p6-8 Jul 2006
Online learning is meeting needs that traditional classrooms cannot fulfill. Online courses can get to people and places beyond the reach of the traditional school setting, serving the needs of students and teachers nationwide. This article describes the advantages of "virtual" schools in Florida, Louisiana, Alaska, West Virginia, and Arizona. Virtual education can mean a variety of things to educators and students, depending on their personal circumstances. For example, online courses allowed this author to maintain her teaching certificate. For others, eLearning will fulfill different educational needs. As states and districts maintain and broaden eLearning options via virtual schools, expanded portals, and enhanced videoconferencing, teacher and student learning opportunities will continue to grow without end.
