Daily time commitment with VLINC coursework
Online time varies greatly from individual to individual. About 6.5 hours a day should be spent engaged in a full course schedule for the average student. This includes what would be equal to instructional and homework time for the average student. Of course, this would increase or decrease depending on grade level and the pace at which a student completes assignments. Breaking that time down into time actively spend on-line versus reading, researching, writing, etc. is dependent on too many factors to pinpoint with accuracy.
Technology Requirements for VLINC Participation
A Computer/Printer may not be required to participate in VLINC. All the technology needed for VLINC participation is available on determination by your school district.
Though, Internet access is required. Dial –up service is adequate, while anything beyond this will enhance performance.
Technical Help/support is available from 8am to 8pm, Mon-Friday. The telephone number will be provided as part of your child's Welcome to VLINC Orientation.
