Preparing for the Virtual World Projection: By 2019, over half of all courses will be conducted through e-learning processes As educators, we are challenged to prepare students to learn through this delivery method. E-learning takes a great deal of commitment, discipline - and an occasional nudge from a dedicated parent and Distance Learning Advisor! (http://www.ncvps.org/parentstudent/whatis/)
Preparing for the Virtual World To be a successful student in the Virtual World, Students need: To make the commitment Be self motivated Be efficient at managing their own time (http://www.ncvps.org/parentstudent/whatis/)
What Does An E-Learning Class Look Like? Both NCVPS and Learn and Earn Online use the same high end gaming graphics and techniques as in popular video games. This helps engage students. Instructors and designers continue to work each semester on revising course content to meet the needs of 21st Century Learners. ( http://www.ncvps.org/parentstudent/virtualcourse)
