FLASH: A New Era in Distance Learning: Live Online Courses (2:50 PM)

Block F – October 29, 2:50 PM

FLASH: A New Era in Distance Learning: Live Online Courses (2:50 PM)

Asynchronous online courses have proven to be a great option for students needing flexibility due to time and geography. This delivery isn’t meant for everyone though as it can feel isolating and unstructured. Because of this, NVU is now offering Live Online courses that incorporate desktop and video conferencing sessions.

Come to this session to learn how high schools throughout Vermont can now provide students with dual enrollment opportunities through this collaborative venture. We will discuss this new model of hybrid courses as well as professional development opportunities for faculty and staff, and other uses of the software and resources that have been provided to high schools in Vermont via NVU’s USDA grant.
