    There are two district-supported Learning Management Systems (LMS) that are used in Vance County Schools, Google Classroom and Canvas. These LMS' streamline assignments, boost collaboration, and foster seamless communication to make the teaching and learning process more productive and meaningful. Sudents can complete assignments, receive feedback, and communicate with their teacher(s) all in one place.

    Click here for more info on Google Classroom.

    If you run into technical issues with either LMS (Google Classroom or Canvas), please submit a LMS help ticket.

     


    Remote Learning Formats

    Remote learning in VCS exists in two formats: synchronously and asynchronously. 

    Synchronous learning means that the teacher and the students come together at the same timezoom online. In VCS, our educators utilize the web-conferencing tool, Zoom, which allow for the livestreaming of audio, video, and presentations, such as live classes or meetings, live conversations, simultaneous document editing, and more. 

    Asynchronous learning means that the teacher and the students  all engage with the course content at different times, from different locations. The teacher provides students with a variety of course materials which the students move through on a more flexible timeline still guided by the teacher. Examples of asynchronous course materials include assigned readings or uploaded media, online quizzes, discussion boards, and much more. The teacher sets guidelines, provides students with feedback, and assesses their work as needed.
