In September of 1998, the first four courses were offered by the Virtual High School of Newfoundland and Labrador. The school was conceived and designed to meet the needs of approximately 80,000 students in this remote Canadian province who live and attend school in small, rural communities whose survival is threatened unless the schools remain competitive with urban schools. This presentation describes the early stages of building the Virtual High School and early assessments by teachers and learners.
