This is our 15th year homeschooling our children currently ages 6 to graduated from homeschool and attending college.
I am part of a Moodle/Elluminate Virtual Homeschool online co-op. The co-op is designed so that homeschool parents who want to teach an online class have tools and students wanting to take free online classes can enjoy a live online classroom with their peers and the teacher with the support of materials at the Moodle site. Currently everything is free thanks to volunteer homeschool moms and dads teaching, the founder paying out of her own pocket for the server for the Moodle which she maintains for us free, and four donors that have gotten together to get us a free Elluminate online classroom. It is a really neat set up thanks to the generosity of homeschoolers who believe in what we are trying to do together.
Drop in to our Moodle site at http://www.virtualhomeschoolgroup.com/. Most of the courses are guest access. Feel free to browse around. You can stop in to our live online classroom most weekdays at 3:30pm central to learn more about our live, online classroom environment. It has full-duplex audio, so have your mic and headphones on if you have them. If you don't have a mic, there is a text chat system too.
Though most of the classes are already rolling and most are full, we have several synchronous classes: chemistry (Apologia), composition, literary analysis, 1st grade phonics (Saxon), math 1st grade (in the K to 3rd Math Meeting course), algebra 1 (Saxon). We also have a few assynchronous, unattended (no teacher) courses.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
