Despite great strides to ensure a quality learning experience in a digital environment, the notion that online classes are impersonal and lack the quality of face-to-face instruction seems to persist. “A lot of people see online education as reading a passage and taking a test,” says Anne Craft, interim executive director of marketing and communications for MVU. “It’s actually a lot more than that.” She says MVU has a sophisticated online instructional process based on research that doesn’t just examine how kids learn, but looks specifically at how they learn online. Students take online classes for a variety of reasons. Some may need an advanced placement or foreign language class not offered at their school. Others may have an illness or injury keeping them home. In many cases, students take online classes simply due to a scheduling conflict.
