The Online Revolution Comes to Public Education

The Online Revolution Comes to Public Education | Via Meadia.

Now it’s spreading to primary and secondary levels. The Toronto District School Board offers a few e-learning programs, and on their website lists these benefits:

Benefits of e-Learning

  • students have access to courses that may not be available at their home school
  • enables students to learn in a more flexible and engaging environment
  • uses technology to provide students with current, accurate information
  • increases opportunity for students’ first choice courses
  • may help to resolve timetable conflict

It isn’t that e-learning is desirable as tech for its own sake — what’s really going on here is a push toward driving down costs while improving quality, range, and flexibility. In other words, more attention on results and value. That can only be good – for students of all ages.
