The Evolving Online Landscape
Cavanaugh, Cathy
School Administrator, v67 n4 p22-25 Apr 2010
School and district leaders are commonly faced with diverse student needs and interests that could be effectively addressed with a course that is not currently offered in local schools. Virtual schools have grown up over the past 15 years in different policy and budget ecosystems, but most online course programs can be classified in one of six major categories: (1) State virtual schools; (2) Multi-district virtual schools; (3) Single-district virtual schools; (4) Consortium programs; (5) University programs; and (6) Private and parochial virtual schools. With multiple online course providers now offering courses to meet student needs, how do school district leaders identify the best option and choose the most appropriate course? The landscape of K-12 online course providers is rapidly evolving. This article provides the navigational guidance that one might need.
