Penn Foster gets into the virtual yearbook game

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Penn Foster, an independent study school based in Scranton, Pa., announced recently that for the first time in the school’s history, it has created a virtual yearbook for its students.

The virtual yearbook honors the 2009 graduates with the students’ photo, course of study and a quote.

So far, the school says the new virtual yearbook has received overwhelming positive response and expects it to become an annual publication.
