Indiana Online and the VLLA Work to Transform Digital Learning

Indiana Online sometimes partners with other organizations to bolster our commitment to transforming digital learning. This includes the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance (VLLA) which is an association of 15 leading innovative virtual programs in the United States. They aim to strengthen online learning through leadership, advocacy, expertise, and professional relationships.

Indiana Online became a member of the VLLA in 2013, greatly strengthening our own program. Through our membership, Indiana Online can utilize resources from all of the members and share expertise to transform educational best practices. All members openly share best practices and expertise to transform educational practices positively.

A VLLA membership allows us to participate in collaborative opportunities, like monthly workgroup meetings, shared national conference presentations,  and yearly face-to-face meetings, It also allows us to share curriculum, marketing ideas and materials, evaluations, and more. This allows us to enrich our courses using fewer financial resources and optimize quality learning experiences for our students.

Our membership also means that we can offer more to our teachers who have access to professional development on a national level, such as a Virtual EdCamp, online book study, and webinars offered by other states.

The VLLA shares ideas and creates solutions so we can accomplish goals beyond the capacity of any single member organization. Together, member organizations serve well over a quarter of a million online course enrollments annually.  

We’re thrilled to have this partnership and provide stronger resources to our students, parents, counselors, and teachers.
