Virtual Astronomy Course (Virginia Department of Education)

Description: The virtual astronomy course is aligned with the Commonwealth’s Science Standards of Learning (SOL) and may be used as a stand-alone minicourse or as a supplement to full-year courses in earth science, physics, or astronomy. The course is optimized for delivery on iPad and is available at no cost via Virginia on iTunes U. The virtual astronomy course may be used to satisfy a state diploma requirement (effective with this year’s first-time freshmen) that students complete at least one virtual course. The Virginia on iTunes U course does not require constant Internet access, making it an option for students who lack access at home.
