This manual is designed to serve as a guidebook for school districts and LEAs who wish to implement their own virtual school programs. It is important for school districts to realize that they do not need to establish separate charter schools or other independent programs in order to maintain a virtual component. Likewise, schools do not need to outsource their virtual programs to private, third party venders. An ideal virtual program should be developed by a school's own personnel, mirror what is taught inside their traditional classrooms and be fully integrated in the school's own curriculum. Although this manual will address outsourcing options, private venders and courseware, the primary purpose of this guidebook is to explain in detail how schools may develop a first-rate virtual program using a free LMS/CMS (Moodle) and their existing resources.
The explosion of sports history literature in the late 20th/early 21st century has made it increasingly difficult to keep abreast of what is published: the annual number of publications has increased from around 250 to 1000 a year over the last decade. This is due in part to the fact that during the late 1980s and 90s, many clubs, leagues and governing bodies of sport have celebrated their centenaries and produced histories to mark this occasion and commemorate their achievements. It is also the result of the growing popularity and realization of the importance and significance of sports history research within academe. This international bibliography of books, articles, conference proceedings and essays in the English language is a one-stop shop for the sports historian wanting to keep abreast of what is new.
