To address concerns about quality and improve online learning, the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance and Quality Matters recently released revised standards for virtual education—one set each for online teaching, online programs, and online courses. The revised standards are the first update since 2011. Representatives from the two organizations spent two years combing through the existing standards from the Aurora Institute (formerly known as the International Association for K–12 Online Learning, or iNACOL) and soliciting feedback from the field to shape the new standards. Educators can freely view or download the 2019 versions of the standards sets for virtual education.
Each month we publish blogs and newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in August.
