Expanded Distance Learning

This service is designed for districts interested in growing their existing Distance Learning, Videoconferencing, or Online/Blended Learning initiatives or looking to start inter-district distance learning on a smaller scale. Expanded Distance Learning uses high-definition interactive video and online conferencing and learning platforms to help provide students with improved access to daily courses and related opportunities.

Expanded Distance Learning is intended for districts interested in using the following models:

  • Smaller networks of schools to better guarantee participation in shared courses and related opportunities
  • Partnering with one other district to share daily courses
  • Additional overflow Distance Learning classrooms to expand program offerings
  • Accessing courses available in the full Distance Learning service catalog once regional scheduling is completed

Key benefits of Expanded Distance Learning Service:

  • Ongoing training and technical support through dedicated helpdesk and remote access
  • Bridging, scheduling and recording of programs
  • Program support through regional committees (when applicable)
  • All features currently included in NERIC’s Videoconferencing (VC) Services, including access to desktop VC and program support to help facilitate integration of DL/VC technology into student learning activities
