Why take online art classes in Indiana?
Indiana has a lot to offer artists and art enthusiasts. We are talking about a state that produced artists from author Kurt Vonnegut to Van Halen singer David Lee Roth and still maintains a thriving arts community today. As of January 2012, the state had more than 13,000 arts-related businesses employing nearly 53,000 people, and the opportunities were surprisingly well spread out across the state. The point is there are plenty of choices for artists and creative minds looking for work in Indiana. Getting your education in the state, whether it is completed traditionally or online, may help you build a network and become well-versed in local career opportunities.
Online Education in Indiana Overview
The Hoosier State appears on the verge of becoming the latest state to give online education its tacit endorsement. The state already offers full-time enrollment in online school to students of all grade levels, but the state schools superintendent has proposed legislation that would require high schoolers to take one online course in order to graduate. There are also two virtual charter schools offering full-time enrollment and a virtual consortium offering individual online courses to high school students in the state, clearly making it one of the leaders in online education adoption nationally.
Online education has still only started to become a statewide issue and it is already a leader in categories like personalized learning, quality of choices, and student access according to the report card from the national campaign for online learning, Digital Learning Now. For online education to truly thrive, the state will still need to provide more standards for advancement and find more funding, but it is still an excellent start.
