    "New Heights Show on Education" Virtual Classes Available to Students

    in Education

    In this episode, I will be dicussing the various virtual opportunities available to students. Homeschool students and virtual school students often have limited ways to take other courses that they would enjoy. With websites and organizations such as Coursera, edX, and the Virtual Homeschool Group, homeschoolers are able to participate and enroll in classes, including advanced courses, for free. They are even able to take part in college classes that are taught by professors from Ivy League Universities, including MIT, Harvard, and Stanford. I will be having Ms. Tammy Moore, founder of the Virtual Homeschool Group explaining the services that the co-op provides to students.
