Online school to offer game-based course

Florida Virtual School (FLVS) is set to launch what it describes as the first complete online game-based course. The game is called Conspiracy Code and is equal to a full credit American history course. The game is developed by 360Ed Inc and meets both national and state standards. FLVS believes the course is "poised to transform online learning."
