From Researching Virtual Initiatives in Education
FORWARD INTO 2015
This wiki is the largest professional wiki in the world devoted to virtual learning in education - at all levels (schools, colleges and universities) including informal learning, open learning/OER and distance learning.
Welcome to the entry page of this wiki where you will find information about virtual schools, colleges and universities. The idea behind this wiki is to create an open and public space where researchers can share information about virtual developments in various different educational sectors. It is supported and maintained by a growing community of researchers and is aimed at stakeholders, researchers and practitioners who would like to have easy access to the latest information about how the virtual phenomenon is manifesting itself in schools, colleges and universities around the world.
In 2015 it is expected that there will be much closer integration of the material on this wiki with that on the POERUP wiki http://poerup.referata.com - which as far as feasible uses the same approach and naming scheme for its focus on OER and MOOCs.
Funding to launch this wiki has come mainly from the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission through projects relevant to virtual learning. In addition, a series of smaller initiatives and volunteer labour have aimed and continue to keep updating the material. (See in particular e-World and LUOERL.)
The Editorial Team makes every effort to ensure, but does not guarantee, the accuracy of the information on this wiki, but we warmly invite anyone who sees incorrect information to register and correct the page yourself within the wiki spirit. You can read more information on this topic here.
