Many schools and districts perceive that one of the biggest barriers to initiating online or blended learning programs is how they will address the administration, integration, and management of such programs. Given that we hear this concern voiced frequently at industry conferences and workshops, there is a good opportunity to roundup some recent articles we’ve posted on Learn Outside the Lines (LOtL) that highlight a key component of Fuel Education’s personalized learning solutions, the PEAK platform. PEAK is a comprehensive platform that simplifies administration, provides intelligent reporting on student progress, and delivers easy-to-execute course customization.

Taking Summer School Online Improves Student Outcomes, Boots Success for Schools and Districts
One of the ways we see schools test the waters of online learning is through a trial program. For some districts, a good place to start is testing out the potential for online learning programs during a summer program where both the shorter session length and a smaller number of students makes tracking progress and deducing results a much easier task. North Clackamas Schools in Oregon is one district that’s used the PEAK platform to improve the delivery of courses to students and, in turn, has seen a significant improvement in student learning outcomes.
