Teachers in the Virtual Learning Program go through intensive training offered by the Excellence Educators Institute. As part of this preparation, they gain online experience in orchestrating an on-screen classroom environment. The teachers learn to translate familiar classroom behavior–hand raising, responding to questions, submitting answers–into the language of virtual education.
