Online learning for students is one of the fastest growing trends in the educational use of technology today in the United States. A recent national survey estimated that more than a million students took online courses during the past school year. Online learning is the current form of a long line of former educational uses to achieve high school credit including correspondence courses, education television, video conferencing and distance learning. Online learning is now a Michigan Merit Curriculum Graduation Requirement for students in Michigan to receive their local district high school diploma. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) defines online learning as a “structured learning activity that utilizes technology with Internet-based tools and resources as the delivery method for instruction, research, assessment and communication.”
