Just had a live demo by the Florida Visual Learning System (FVLS) in connection with the Virtual Education Project that the current administration has taken on. A generator and computer lab has already been set up at Ricks Institute as a donation from RIAA to get this program going. More will be put on the website. Imagine an instructor teaching a class from the US. Exciting future for Ricks Institute.
Tell us (by providing comments) if YOU think this is a worthy initiative…
The National Chairman Dave Dixon wrapped up his two year term recounting the achievements of his administration as laid out in a plan he had put forth when elected. The plan included initiating 2 major projects; a new Water System for Ricks Institute and a Virtual Education Program that would allow students to receive instruction via the Internet. The Chairman reported that he and others in his Administration are working closely with the school to begin piloting this program.
