Abstract

In New Zealand, students are increasingly taking subjects via virtual learning. There are a number of frameworks, guidelines and matrices available to support those working in this area. This paper explores how these frameworks are and are not being used by those involved in virtual schooling in one area of New Zealand, and their perceptions about how they are and are not useful. Current frameworks will then be adapted based on the results.
