Resources from the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance
The Leadership Alliance members collaborate on resources that we hope you will find useful for your programs.
The following resources are available on the North Carolina Virtual Public School website.
Lab Facilitator Guide
Facilitators are essential partners in ensuring student success in online courses. The NCVPS teacher, lab facilitator, e-learning advisor (ELA), and parent form a core team that can guide students to successful completion of their online courses.
Virtual Charters vs. NCVPS
We’ve had two virtual charters open this past year in North Carolina. One has a name very similar name to ours, the North Carolina Virtual Academy. We created this web page to delineate the differences without provoking any negativity between us and them.
The scorecard is designed to highlight the successful statewide use of North Carolina Virtual Public School. Critical metrics show student performance, our top enrolling districts as well as the most popular courses. Information about courses including type and grade level distribution is also included. Scorecards for individual districts displaying current data were shared with superintendents.
This publication from Michigan Virtual is intended to provide an understanding of the fundamental elements of mentoring or coaching students for success with online courses and has been prepared with the assistance and insight of experienced mentors, instructors, administrators, and customer service representatives from Michigan Virtual.
Michigan Virtual’s Parent Guide to Online Learning was prepared for parents, guardians, counselors and others who want to help students decide whether online courses are a good option for them. The Parent Guide includes information about online learning opportunities, characteristics of a successful online learner, and how to prepare for learning online.
Research shows that students who are well prepared and well supported for online courses perform better in their classes. Michigan Virtual’s Student Guide to Online Learning was prepared for students to learn about how taking virtual courses is different from taking courses in a traditional face-to-face classroom.
Michigan Virtual’s Teacher Guide to Online Learning supports teachers who are new to teaching online. The guide was written specifically for those who have little or no familiarity with online learning and who are interested in resources to help online learners be more successful.
