Online learning is no longer the wave of the future. Today, it is a significant part of many students’ educational experience and estimates suggest that, by 2019, 50 percent of all high school courses will be offered online. To accommodate this growing need, deTOP partners with award-winning, UC-approved online providers to deliver content and instruction. Lesson materials are appropriate, flexible, and engaging and include lab activities, written assignments, and discussion questions. Assessments (which range from quizzes to a final exam) test for knowledge at various levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Just as in a face-to-face class, regular attendance, active participation, timely completion of assignments, and thorough attention to detail make for a successful online learning experience. Unlike a traditional course, however, students may work at their own pace, review lecture materials as often as needed, and schedule their own assessments.*
To date, we have partnered with the curriculum providers Edgenuity, Virtual High School (VHS), and Edmentum for standard coursework. The Online Jewish Studies Consortium (OJSC) is a primary provider of our Jewish studies requirements, and Language Bird, where students get one-on-one instruction with a native speaker, handles most of our foreign language requests.
*All assessments will be taken in the presence of a deTOP staff member.
