At VLACS, we are proud to offer a curriculum that is unparalleled in both its depth and breadth, so you can feel confident in your learning.
The VLACS curriculum offers best-in-class course content, so you know you’re getting an education that will prepare you for whatever comes next.
We purchase our courses from vetted course providers who work to rigorously maintain content. This curriculum is aligned with national and state standards, NCAA-approved, and subject to AP audits. VLACS projects and experiences are written by a trained group of certified instructors. Our experienced instructional designers prepare each course for publication in our learning management system, Canvas. All courses are accessible 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.
Each course contains a series of three to eight modules that focus on different topics within the course’s subject matter. Each module consists of lessons that include text and video material for students to learn concepts within the module, plus writing assignments, quizzes, and tests to practice what they’ve learned. When you enroll in a course, you will complete each module in chronological order.
At the beginning of each course, you will work with your instructor to determine a realistic, achievable learning pace. You’ll get a pace chart as a guideline to help you plan how many assignments they should complete each week in order to stay on track. If you end up needing more time to master any part of your coursework, that’s okay. You can take as much time as you need as long as you continue to complete assignments and check in with your instructor at regular intervals.
When you complete a course module, your instructor will schedule a video call to complete a discussion-based assessment. Your instructor will ask you a set of fixed questions related to what you learned in the module. Depending on the results of the DBA, you’ll either move on to the next module or take some extra time to master the concepts in the previous module.
