Virtual Campus courses are open to S6 students. They can be an excellent way to open up the range of options available to you, for example to study an Advanced Higher or a Higher which we do not currently offer within Armadale Academy. Most learning is on a virtual basis: you will be linked with a teacher in another West Lothian school and you will access learning resources, communicate with them and submit your work online. There are occasional face to face meetings during the year where needed. If you are considering a Virtual Campus course it is essential that you are:
- genuinely interested in the subject,
- highly organised,
- able to work on your own initiative and meet deadlines without daily contact with a teacher, and
- willing to learn using online platforms.
You will be given training in how to use the online platforms before the course starts.
