Online Learning Open Houses

This is interesting and there is one session dealing with K-12 - plus it appears that the Florida Virtual School people will have some kind of open house as well.

There is a growing transformation in education, and it’s called distance learning.

Currently, over 2.5 million college students are taking online course and/or earning online college degrees. At the secondary school level, over 700,000 high school students are taking one or more courses online, and nearly 40 states have established state-wide or state-lead virtual schools. Michigan became the first state in 2007 to require high school students take at least one online course for graduation.

Today, you can earn just about any degree online (high school, associate, undergraduate, and graduate) from dozens of schools and colleges across the United States. The Sloan Consortium maintains a catalog of degrees and certificate programs offered by a wide range of regionally accredited institutions.

Distance learning allows you to learn from home, from work, or anywhere else – without commuting. You learn when it's convenient for you.

Using the latest technology to help students learn, distance learning stimulates you in ways a simple lecture can't. It is interactive, engaging and effective. For example, you can pull up a streaming video, sit in a virtual classroom, collaborate on a group project, listen to a podcast, take part in a discussion board or chat group, e-mail your fellow classmates, or instant message your professor. Distance learning students may not be on a campus, but they are engaged and connecting all the time.

Experience distance learning for yourself by registering and attending the following Online Open Houses, where you can see first-hand, how and what distance learning is all about.
See http://www.ndlw.org/learners.html for more information.
