Abstract

One of the fastest growing phenomena in the use of educational technology is online learning. The shift from traditional schooling to virtual models is a shift in pedagogy from objectivist to a constructivist model where students take more ownership over their learning. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, academic institutes have an urgency to support students in an online environment while adapting extracurricular activities to the new domain and providing an additional level of engagement, support, and community of learners for their student body. It is important to adapt distant learning to meet all the social, academic, and cognitive needs of all students. This chapter seeks to introduce readers to the opportunities virtual schools can provide to their students interested in engaging with peers outside of the traditional classroom or school setting to pursue common likes and activities.
