Abstract: Regardless of whether or not e-learning reflects sound educational practice, it is changing the landscape of high school education. Yet, many still wonder: Will e-learning result in better learning? The answer appears to be a resounding no since experts say that most online curricula are simply traditional material copied to the Web. Thus, despite rapid proliferation of e-learning opportunities for K-12 learners – particularly high school learners, there remains an urgent need to understand how to get the most out of its use in support of K-12 teaching and learning. This paper elaborates on an alternative design model, The Online Academy, a virtual high school currently being developed that adopts new pedagogical models to frame emerging learning environments.
