More Indiana schools are using eLearning in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s some advice to make it a success for students, teachers and parents.


Many children will be learning on an iPad or a laptop this fall as some school districts are starting the school year remotely and others are allowing students to take classes at home. 

In response to the ongoing pandemic and the need for further virtual learning, districts across Central Indiana incorporated plans to bring devices to all students. 

A survey of Indiana districts conducted from March 6 to April 3 found that 57% of traditional districts had enough devices for students in every grade to have their own — also known as being one-to-one. And 33% of charter schools were one-to-one at all grade levels, according to the survey.
