ACCESS (Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators and Students Statewide) was created to provide classroom courses with certified teachers by way of technology to all high schools in the State of Alabama. Courses include advanced placement, elective and other specialized courses that students may not have access to in rural and low income schools with limited offerings. Available to students in grades 9-12 in public high schools and in some cases state correctional facilities.
Students best suited for this curriculum are computer literate, capable of independent learning and can communicate effectively in writing. Courses are provided in three ways: 1) Web-based (asynchronous) that do not need to be taught in "real time" with multi-media content and an e-teacher to assign, grade and communicate online, 2) Interactive video conferencing (synchronous) is taught at a designated time using two-way audio and video instruction, thus enabling face to face communication, and 3) Blended courses which utilize a combination of both.
