The Victorian Virtual Learning Network (VVLN) is an initiative of Bendigo Senior Secondary College (BSSC) to provide VCE subjects virtually, using web-based technology.
The network started as a proof of concept in 2009 supported by Multimedia Victoria’s broadband grants and Department of Education funding and now delivers 13 subjects to 165 students. The VVLN takes enrolments directly from schools. All students must be enrolled in the VCE within the school prior to enrolling in a subject with the VVLN.
In 2015 the VVLN is offering the following subjects to schools:
- Legal Studies 1–2
- Legal Studies 3–4
- Chemistry 1–2
- Physics 1–2
- Physics 3–4
- Psychology 1–2
- Psychology 3–4
- General Maths 1–2
- Math Methods 1–2
- Math Methods 3–4
- Specialist Maths 3–4
- Health & Human Development 1–2
- Health & Human Development 3–4
The VVLN caters for any VCE student, particularly students from rural schools or from small metropolitan secondary schools, whose subject of choice is not available at their home school. They also cater for students with timetable clashes and special circumstances e.g. sporting commitments.
The VVLN online subjects are delivered asynchronously, allowing students access to their subject at anytime. Online lessons incorporate digital learning resources including video, audio, text, simulations, interactivity, monitoring and feedback. Students receive regular individual support and direction through online contact with their teachers.
