It’s second period at Notus Junior/Senior High School, and students in Trish Shelden’s room are learning everything from psychology to digital photography. Eighteen students sit at computers, and one bounces nearby on a small platform, taking PE via Wii. Similar scenes take place all day every day, as most of Notus’ 113 high school students spend one of their daily class periods taking an online course under Shelden’s watchful eye. With a slate of around 130 such courses available from the Idaho Digital Learning Academy, students can take electives little Notus can’t offer, make up for a class they failed or get a coveted course at a time that works for them.
