And now, following on from my posting on online examinations for school pupils, there’s talk that students might not have to go to school to get a public education in the future. This piece is about what is happening in South Carolina in the US.
"In a virtual learning setting, students take lessons, complete assignments and take tests online. Teachers monitor their learning and grade the assignments and exams. Sometimes, online chats, e-mail exchanges, telephone conversations and even home visits are part of a virtual school program."
