Management of two new projects with Georgia Virtual School
Project 1: Student Orientation course.
The orientation course is mandatory for new students. This self-paced course walks them through the components necessary for online learning. Technical expertise will be required to incorporate the gaming and badging components. GAVS needs experts to help scope out a solution. This could be incorporating existing platforms or coding the solution in house. We currently utilize the Credly API for our teachers and badging. This may be a component to consider.
