Technical requirements and specifications
All students enrolling at VSV require regular and reliable access to a computer/device and the internet. Students will need to login to VSVOnline (the school’s learning management system) to communicate and submit work online regularly. They are expected to participate in multiple areas of the online courses, including online classes, forums and interactive activities. All student reports are only available online.
To have the best experience at Virtual School Victoria, students should have a device that is able to join live classes with a camera and a microphone. It can be beneficial to use a headset microphone for better audio quality, but in-built device microphones can also be used.
It is also recommended that students have a device with a physical keyboard to easily take notes and respond to communication. Most desktops or laptops are compatible with VSVOnline and our online classrooms. Please keep in mind that for some subjects, an iPhone or iPad-like device will be insufficient to meet the needs of the study. Where possible, it is recommended that more than one device is available if more than one child is enrolled at VSV in the same family.
