Frequently Asked Questions

What is MyVCLab.com?

MyVCLab.com is an online video-based digital literacy resource that provides students with meaningful opportunities to apply core content knowledge through computer-based projects. When MyVCLab.com is used in a school setting, it effectively bridges the gap between the classroom and computer lab. For example, as students learn about the solar system in their science class they will apply their understanding of the solar system as they create an animated digital solar system via MyVCLab.com.

What grade level(s) is this for?

Currently, all projects are geared toward 4th and 5th graders. While the computer skills learned during a project are not age specific, the core content being reinforced is at the elementary level.

How long will each project take?

The length of time needed to complete a project depends on the computer skills of your students and the amount of time allotted to working on MyVCLab.com. Currently, students with little to no computer skills who spend one hour per week working on a MyVCLab.com project are taking at least four weeks to reach completion.

What software/equipment is needed?

You will need to have Microsoft Office software on any computer that is intended for use with MyVCLab.com.

Will students need assistance?

Yes. Even though MyVCLab.com presents students with step-by-step video demonstrated instructions, they may still need assistance throughout the creative process. Again, the amount of assistance needed will depend upon the computer abilities of your students.
