Distance education is not a new concept. In fact, colleges and universities have been offering it for years. It can be a great opportunity for adult students to continue their educations while working and raising families. If it weren’t for the option of online courses, I may not have been able to earn my MBA a few years ago. It may or may not have happened, but certainly would not have happened within the time frame it did.
I have been hearing a lot of radio advertisements and reading a lot of articles recently about virtual education for the K-12 grade levels, too. It may or may not be the right option for your school district, but this is a trend that is definitely on the rise.
If you are looking to add an online education option or courses to your district’s curriculum, take a look at this newsletter from 4imprint with ideas on how to help students make the most of this opportunity.
