An increasing number of districts are starting to jump into the online learning business, or are at least contemplating doing so. But figuring out the most efficient and effective ways of setting up e-learning options for students and teachers can be overwhelming.
The International Association for K-12 Online Learning, based in Vienna, Va., has put together a series of how-to Webinars outlining the steps to building a successful online education program. Topics for the low-cost virtual workshops include selecting curriculum and content, teacher recruitment, and student support.
“Starting an online school or online program is a many-faceted challenge, even for seasoned educators.” Susan Patrick, iNACOL’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “This Webinar series will be simple enough to help educators with all levels of experience, yet advanced enough to answer the complex management, operational, and policy issues people are dealing with.”
