The Virtual Arkansas Consortium is a collection of schools, districts, or other educational entities who desire to have full access to the Canvas Learning Management System. These organizations also have the ability to share course content and other educational material with others within the consortium, creating a giant virtual PLC! In addition, consortium members can opt in for access to the Virtual Arkansas Consortium Course Catalog, a collection of 80+ courses for 7th-12th grade students. This catalog will continue to grow with new courses added each year!

We will continue to provide services and design and develop Arkansas courses, aligned to the Arkansas standards, for Arkansas students, by Arkansas subject matter experts.
