Examines results from an online questionnaire that explores online and distance learning courses in Memphis area high schools.
The Southwest Tennessee Rural Education Cooperative (SWTREC), a coalition of superintendents near Memphis, “wanted to understand one another’s online and distance learning offerings and to share resources across schools.... This report presents findings on the extent of online and distance learning offerings in 2012/13 in SWTREC district high schools. Data for the study were collected through an online questionnaire administered by SWTREC districts in April 2013 and completed by one person from each participating school. District superintendents selected respondents based on their knowledge of online and distance learning offerings. Of the 21 high schools in SWTREC districts, 17 responded to the survey” (p.i). The authors discuss the findings, as well as the implications and limitations of the study.
