More than 200 Long Island high school students are taking newly available online Advanced Placement courses, with extra offerings to come in the fall. Eight online AP courses now are being offered in 15 districts, an initiative funded by a $2 million state grant to a Nassau BOCES-led consortium that includes both Eastern and Western Suffolk BOCES. Six new virtual Advanced Placement courses are in development and will be available in September, officials said. The new interactive courses, which use PowerPoint, video and other forms of multimedia, are the first to be designed by a team of 11 Long Island teachers. Each class, except AP studio art, will have two instructors.
