Abstract

K-12 online learning environments, otherwise known as virtual schools, have made their debut in the last seven years. While their growth was slow in the beginning due to the limitations of technology, recent political and technological advances have pushed them toward the crashing wave of the Communication Age. This growth has swelled to make Virtual Schools a possible focus for research in the near future. Enrollment in online courses has doubled in the last year (Taylor, 2002), causing one to wonder if the schools will be equal to the challenge. Are virtual schools prepared to meet the needs of the students who want to utilize their services? This paper discusses the unique needs of online students, explores the existing current online curriculum, and discusses future directions research should take to ensure that online curriculum meets the needs of students.
