Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
PLATO Learning, a leading provider of online education solutions for kindergarten through adult learners, has introduced vCourses; rigorous, research-based courses designed to meet the needs of 21st century learners.
While all PLATO Learning courses are interactive, engaging, and effective, vCourses have been optimized specifically for virtual programs. PLATO vCourses benefits include a streamlined workflow for teachers and administrators, an intuitive and easy to navigate user interface for learners, and support services that ensure schools and districts can implement an effective virtual program quickly and cost-effectively.
“As the online learning population continues to grow rapidly, we will continue to support schools and districts by providing a virtual learning experience that sets the standard for the industry,” said Jamie Candee, vice president of product and marketing for PLATO Learning. “Virtual courses are becoming an expectation of learners and families. With PLATO vCourses, schools and districts can meet that expectation, and offer a learning option that will help them retain students.”
Like all PLATO Learning courses, vCourses are aligned to Common Core, state and national standards. They also follow the iNACOL National Standards of Quality for Online Courses, ensuring students receive an exceptional virtual learning experience.
PLATO will be featuring and demonstrating vCourses at booth 56 at the Virtual School Symposium in Indianapolis November 9-11.
