The first National Online Learning Day will recognize the advantages and vast potential of blended and online learning and the accomplishments of these students everywhere. Whether you’ve ever taken an online course, attended an online school, used online educational resources at a traditional brick and mortar school, taught an online class, or have a child or friend who’s an online student, this day is for you! The day will recognize students and their supporters. It’s a day to come together as a community and celebrate the achievements of online students and the accessibility of online learning.
Evolving online technology is making education more manageable and convenient for every generation. Every day, students are earning high school diplomas, certificates, college degrees and credits online. National Online Learning Day brings nationwide recognition to these students. And online schooling continues to grow and provide new resources and support to students.
