Online Credit-bearing Courses: Models of implementation
Online courses are offered in the instructional settings defined below:
- "Virtual" Implementation (EDGL/APXL): Course offered online with the vendor providing the appropriately credentialed teacher. These courses are NCAA-approved.
- "Blended" Implementation (EDG/APX): Instruction is delivered by an LAUSD credentialed instructor and the digital content is provided by the online vendor. These courses are NCAA-approved.
- Prescriptive versions (EDGP/APXP): These courses are intended for credit recovery only. When available, both virtual and blended implementation models may offer a course in a prescriptive (mastery-based) version. These courses are the same as the core (original credit) version with a “test-out” feature.
Prescriptive courses are not NCAA-approved regarless if offered in the Virtual model.
