For Educators

Georgia Virtual Learning consists of three separate environments: Georgia Virtual School, Georgia Virtual Credit Recovery Program, and Georgia Virtual Professional Learning. The unique and varied student body of Georgia Virtual Learning includes public school students, private school students, and home school students. 

Teaching online is an invigorating experience. Unlike face-to-face environments, teachers and students have access to course material 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All course material is provided for instructors and authored by specialized content developers according to and in line with the Georgia Performance Standards

Teaching in a virtual learning environment involves facilitating daily learning activities such as discussions, projects, labs, group work, and writing workshops; and communicating with parents, students, and facilitators.  Serving as a guide to students, teachers for Georgia Virtual School provide valuable feedback, remediation, and enrichment for students in a rigorous academic environment. 

The content in Georgia Virtual courses is available for anyone to view.  Teachers can access the courses on our free Shared Content page. Courses are divided into modules and are aligned with the Georgia Standards of Excellence.
