What is involved in Online Learning with the Prairie South Virtual School?

Taking a class in the virtual school involves the following:

  • Logging into the course management system called Moodle
  • Reading over the outline in the Moodle course
  • Building a work/study schedule – what work do you need to do weekly so that you can complete the course successfully in the course timeframe?
  • Spending 5 - 10 hours a week working on the course
  • Follow the work/study schedule by:
    • reading and doing the assignments
    • submitting assignments (scan , fax, or audio recording) on-time
    • asking your teacher questions via email
    • review the returned work and redo the questions/work which needs improvement
  • Do not procrastinate – follow your work/study schedule. Due dates are very important and you will be held accountable (within reason) to follow your due dates. 
  • All courses will have content in the Moodle class and some will have a text book which will be shipped to you.

Somethings to keep in mind:

  • You are responsible for your learning
  • You need a computer and interent at home
  • Online teachers are available to help facilitate your learning by answering questions.  You must ask questions!!
