“The online high school’s MOOC approach is unique in that students attending will experience live instruction two times a week and have access to online materials throughout the three-week period.” MOOCs are gaining in popularity since being offered to college students at universities around the country several years ago as collaborative learning events. Offered free of charge, these MOOCs have helped college students from around the world learn new subjects in various subject areas and delivered college-level course information. The format opened a revolutionary new approach to education, with over 100,000 students enrolling in single courses. However, little has been done to provide this access to high school students seeking to learn via this exciting method until now.
