What can parents do to help their child with Online Learning?

Parental involvement plays a key role in the success of a virtual student (Black, 2009). According to Hoover-Dempsey and Sandler (2005), there are four behaviors that parents carry out to support their children: giving the student encouragement, reinforcing positive learning behaviors, modeling positive learning behaviors, and providing instruction when required.
