Wisconsin Digital Learning Collaborative (WDLC) - WI Blended, Online & Virtual School Programs

Wisconsin Digital Learning Collaborative: Innovate. Collaborate. Educate

Wisconsin's Digital Leader for Virtual and Blended Learning

The statewide web academy provider, known as the Wisconsin Digital Learning Collaborative (WDLC) has been established pursuant to the authority granted in Wis. Stat. §115.28(53), to provide equitable access to high-quality online education by offering online learning to school districts, cooperative educational service agencies, charter schools and private schools located in this state.

The WDLC consists of two collaborating organizations, the Wisconsin Virtual School and the Wisconsin eSchool Network to provide partnership pathways to schools. The two organizations partner with DPI to provide a single point for school districts to access quality online courses, professional learning, research and best practices, and administrative planning support.

Planning, Implementing and Administrating Digital Learning Programs

In addition, the WDLC helps to guide students in personalized learning technology and curriculum options.  Access a recent presentation from the Wisconsin Association of School Board conference Personalized Learning through eCollaboration providing information about services, partnerships, and digital learning decision-making.

Online Programs and Virtual Schools

If you are interested in virtual programs or schools, contact your local school district first as many have virtual and online programs available. The difference between the "Online Programs" and "Virtual Schools" sections below is that the online programs usually offer courses to school districts, while the virtual schools usually offer courses directly to students. Access the DPI Online and Blended Learning Guide and Virtual Charter Schools to help you in planning, implementing and administrating your digital learning programs.
