BUTLER TECH ONLINE COURSES
Butler Tech Online courses are web-based and accessible anytime, anywhere a student has access to the Internet. Butler Tech Online courses are aligned with the Ohio Academic Content Standards. Butler Tech Online courses provide a combination of self-paced lessons, lectures, and resources. Courses follow an organized, intuitive, and interactive approach that features proven teaching components, including the following:
Our student-centered approach is engaging, interesting, and instructionally sound. Courses are much more than reading and lectures. They are designed to foster creativity and exploration supported by a variety of online learning activities. Learning is based on structure, content, community, and guided activity, using the personal connection of a qualified instructor who brings real-world experiences and knowledge. All courses are presented by semester and represent about 18 weeks of work for the student, which equates to 1/2 credit for each course.
Butler Tech Online currently offers many courses at two different levels, a foundational level and a college prep level.
The foundation level courses (see below) meet the appropriate Ohio Academic Content Standards. The material is presented in a very straightforward manner. These courses were written primarily for at risk students and for students taking courses for credit recovery.
The college prep level courses (see below) also meet the appropriate Ohio Academic Content Standards, as well as the ACT test standards. These courses require a little more time and effort than the foundation level courses and also require students to utilize higher level critical thinking skills.
Butler Tech Online is partnered with Aventa Learning to provide even more course options for our students. These courses are of very high quality and will be delivered in the same learning management system as our BTOL courses. If you are purchasing courses, please note that these courses are priced differently than BTOL courses. Some courses include the need for textbooks or materials and these expenses will be the responsibility of the student.
*Courses offered based on availability of instructor.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Students taking courses online need to take a little different approach to their education than they may have in a traditional classroom. The following are some tips for success that may be helpful for students:
• Before enrolling into Butler Tech Online, be sure you know what you are getting into and are prepared for the requirements of this mode of learning.
Each course includes an end of course exam which must be taken in a proctored setting. When you are ready for the exam, please contact your lab monitor, counselor or the BTOL office to schedule this exam. You must have a 65% for all lessons before scheduling your exam. Taking the exam signifies that you are satisfied with your final grade in the course. Once you take the exam, you may not return to the course to complete additional work to raise your grade.
