As the Director of VTVLC, my goal is to create an online learning environment for students that is both a powerful tool for learning, and an easy to understand interface. I am very excited that our new student portal provides valuable information for students that they can understand “at a glance”.
When students look at their current course enrollments, they will see a panel for each course. The panel provides their current grade, as well as how much of the course they have completed. This is very important, because in the past, students sometimes had a false sense of how well they were doing by simply looking at their grade in the course. Now, by adding in the percent complete, students and parents can have a much more accurate picture of their progress.
Other features included in these panels are a single sign on for launching the course, start and end dates, and a quick link to contact the teacher. We are very excited and look forward to the start of the new school year!
