Online and blended learning programs can increase course options for students in rural areas and have the potential to transform face-to-face instruction, as long as state-level supports are in place, including professional development opportunities for teachers and related training for pre-service teachers, according to a new report from the New York State Online Learning Advisory Council. The council was formed in 2014 and tasked with the responsibility of “developing recommendations regarding the statewide delivery of online and blended learning services in school districts,” according to a news release. The council consists of 11 members “whose backgrounds include a wide variety of expertise in online and blended learning.”
