Students in Florida can now take many of their core classes in a room with a computer and no teacher. The state of Florida passed an amendment in 2002 called the Florida Class Size Reduction Amendment which allows them to place virtual e-learning labs in schools.
Although this amendment limits the number of students allowed in a classroom, there are no limits to the virtual labs. Unfortunately for students, many of them were placed in these virtual classroom courses without signing up for them. The setup of an e-learning lab is typically a room filled with computers. There is no teacher in this setting, just a facilitator that makes sure students progress in the course and addresses any technical problems.
