eLearning at Shenandoah School Corporation
Shenandoah Schools are excited to announce that we have been approved to participate in the state’s eLearning program.In 2011, the Indiana Department of Education began allowing schools to take advantage of learning opportunities outside of the traditional school day and place through virtual options for learning.After spending the past year and a half preparing, SSC is excited to offer this to our students.
What is eLearning?
During an eLearning day, teachers provide instruction to students virtually, or online.While there are multiple options available to schools, Shenandoah will only participate in “Planned eLearning Days.”In other words, parents, students, and teachers will know of an eLearning day ahead of time.This will allow teachers to prepare adequate lessons and parents to plan accordingly.
In 2016, 6.3 Million college students took at least one online course, with Public colleges/Universities seeing the largest growth.
Students aren’t bound by traditional aspects of school. Students can accelerate, take more time, or complete their work from the beach.
As of July 6, 2018, Canvas had 1,218 installations and Blackboard had 1,216 at US colleges and universities.
Job applications, license renewal, shopping, paying bills, etc…are all online.
In 2017, 43% of employed Americans spent at least some time working remotely.
