The K-12 Online Learning Provider Landscape Infographic attempts to alleviate confusion giving an idea of providers in three areas:
- Delivery and Management Systems,
- Content and Instruction, and
- Professional Development.
Delivery and Management Systems encompass several areas: Learning Management Systems, Student Information Systems, Web Conferencing, and Other Tech.
Content and Instruction include some companies that provide content without teaching, and others that provide both. In the bottom right, Education Management Organizations are included; these companies provide many of the services around the entire wheel, though some online programs may choose to contract out only one or two of their services.
The Professional Development section highlights key providers that offer professional development in support of online teaching and leadership.
