General Course Information

All IDEAL-NM online courses are taught by NM licensed teachers. They are asynchronous—students and teachers access the courses at different times. The courses are designed to be interactive and engaging and with the exception of some of the Advanced Placement and English language arts courses, do not require textbooks. Through various communication tools (i.e., discussion board, messaging, and chat) students interact with each other and their teacher on an ongoing basis. Courses have web conferencing capabilty, which enables live interaction between teachers and students for individual and group instruction or for parent/ student/teacher conferences. Each course includes a pacing guide that can be adjusted for different time frames for completion to accommodate traditional and block schedules and to allow students to individually determine pace. However, all courses must be completed within an 18-week time period.
