When creating an online class content, teachers must remember that for learners, the online experience is not a duplicate of the classroom. A successful online class should rely on presenting teaching materials in a well-organized and contextual manner that is easy for students to interact with. Effectively using visuals and multimedia can add a sense of engagement and fun. The Massachusetts Virtual Academy at Greenfield, MAVA, the first 100% on-line public school in the state, will present how teachers deliver their curriculum in a general education, interventionist, and Special Education online classroom.

We plan on bringing 3 teachers to discuss how they take their learning objectives, break down the content and by following the school's Live Lesson Expected Practices teach their subject to their online learners. We will demonstrate the use of BlackBoard Elluninate, the synchronous platform MAVA uses to deliver content.
