Some school districts are looking for new ways to improve learning and graduation rates while working with a limited budget, and one Michigan group says a good way to do that is to head to the web. Tuesday, Michigan Virtual University held an online learning symposium on the MSU campus. Education leaders from around the country, along with local students, were on hand to talk about why online classes are a good tool. One leader says they are a cheap alternative and help students get more prepared for college. “They need better course content opportunities. And the content that they are able to acquire through online opportunities is often a great supplement to the learning that they get in schools,” said Steve Midgley, U.S. Education Department.
