Iowa Learning Online

Iowa Learning Online is a network that supports Iowa school districts in providing free online courses for students in grades K-12. It is not itself a school and does not replace local schools in Iowa. Rather, the program serves a variety of educational needs and a broad range of learners. It is open to meeting the needs of all students, not only those with advanced learning needs, from struggling learners to advanced placement students.

About Iowa Learning Online

Started in 2004, Iowa Learning Online is an initiative of the Iowa Department of Education. Iowa provides distance education to high school students across the state. Video classrooms are utilized to deliver distance education to students of different academic backgrounds. Iowa online courses are made available through the Moodle Course Management System, which provides a secure and robust framework for delivering courses online.

Students enroll in classes through the guidance counselor or administrator at their local school. Schools enrolling students in Iowa Learning Online classes are asked to designate a student coach who provides on-site support and encouragement to each student or group of students. Actively involved student coaches are essential to a student’s successful completion of online courses. Student grades and credits are awarded by the student’s home school based on the recommendation of the online instructor.
