Abstract

This paper represents a pattern in the development of the state of practice in distance learning in rural Oklahoma in Math, the Hard Sciences and the Computing Sciences. At SITE2006 Moseley and Raoufi reported on the establishment of ROCCA (The Rural Oklahoma Collaborative Computing Alliance). This umbrella alliance for multiple projects in Rural Oklahoma was designed to significantly increase the number of graduating high school seniors that will pursue degrees in the computing disciplines. This paper reports on the extension of this alliance to include math, chemistry, biology, physics and exercise science right along with computer science. ROCCA was targeted at high school juniors and seniors and the goal was to increase the number of participants that would pursue degrees in the computing disciplines. In this project the target audience is K-12 students and teachers in rurally isolated portions of Oklahoma.
