Online classes in K-12 involve the same basic functions that every school has, from taking tests to hearing lectures. But the virtual experience changes the dynamic. Here’s how online classes typically play out. You work at a computer at home or at school. On the Internet, you log on to your lessons and begin. You can attend from home anytime of day or night. Some schools track the hours you spend online. You or your parent also must keep a log of the total hours spent learning, including online work and off-line studying and reading. These count toward earning a course credit and are used by schools to collect per-student state money. The minimum number of hours required each week varies by school and grade.
