School districts throughout the country report they are offering students significantly more online learning programs in 2013 compared to 2012 – especially blended learning and online courses for credit – according to an annual survey of district- and school-level leaders, announced today by K12 Inc., the nation’s leading provider of technology-powered individualized education solutions for students in pre-kindergarten through high school.
The three factors rated as most critical for success in implementing credit recovery, online courses and full-time online learning were: tracking student progress with reporting tools, offering rigorous and engaging curriculum, and having teachers available to intervene/assist struggling students. When asked how to measure quality in online learning programs, the highest rated response was “the student demonstrates significant academic progress in the year.”
