"With the growing popularity in e-learning, it occurred to me that the e should mean more than electronic. If we are going to call it e-learning, shouldn't it be effective, efficient, and engaging?" ― M David Merrill, First Principles of Instruction

Distance Education Curriculum Submission Form
This is the form through which Regional Program Managers can submit curricula to the Distance Education Curriculum Review Panel. Please fill out this form as completely as possible and send an email to vdesk@vcu.edu. when your submission is complete.

Approved Curriculum
This current (July 2018) list of approved distance education curricula is made public by the Virginia Department of Education, Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education to renew a focus on distance education, associated learning methods and published curricula, and its role in addressing the external and institutional barriers to educational services faced by students and communities. This information will be used to reach out to publishers and program managers who may have new resources to share for consideration. Watch for an updated version of this resource to be published in the fall of 2018.

Assessment Policy
The state policy for Distance Education provides requirements for counting students as distance learners, reporting, and more.
