How do you offer socialization in an online school?
The courses that students take provide many chances to interact with other students through discussion threads and "virtual classrooms" where students are together at the same time communicating through two-way voice over IP, instant messaging, and application sharing. Students have told us that they build great relationships with other students through the community-building opportunities we provide. Our Insight School of Oklahoma students are more than just classmates, they are athletes, artists, volunteers, friends, and so much more. Even though Insight School of Oklahoma is an online school, we believe it's important that we offer field trips, dances (even a prom), and a graduation ceremony among many other in-person activities. It's all in support of an authentic public school experience that both teaches and socializes.
