Here is an interesting article describing a way that a student at UC Boulder attended class via computer.  I learned about this in the Graduate Certificate Program (Language Teaching with Technology).  I hope the article will be useful to you.

The first two paragraphs read as follows:

Annie Miller, a CU Boulder student majoring in International Affairs, approached her Arabic Instructor, Mona Attwa, about continuing her Arabic language learning in the Spring 2017 semester. Due to a hip surgery over the Winter break, Ms. Miller was unable to attend class. Eager to not miss out on the beginning weeks of the Beginning Arabic 2 course while she recovered from the surgery, Ms. Miller asked if any accommodation could be made.

With collaboration and support from the Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations, OIT's Academic Technology Design Team, and the Anderson Language and Technology Center (ALTEC), Ms. Attwa and Ms. Miller utilized a new technology available on the CU Boulder campus, the Kubi, in order to make the accommodation possible.  

The rest of the article is here:

Thanks Tom.

Could you describe what interpersonal interactions look like between and among students?  I'm most interested in interpersonal speaking to help all the decision-makers grasp what it looks like in this model.

This is my entire school.  We are an on-line, public charter school with 11 charters in California.  All of our students and teachers work from home with required and optional live sessions weekly via BlackBoard Connect.

Does your district have any experiences with high school students attending a language class via computer that is taught by an instructor in another location?   If so, please contact me about your experiences.
