Investigating Innovative Virtual Schools and Colleges

January 16, 2011

A new research project to investigate Virtual School and College Provision called VISCED has just been launched with the support of the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme.
Partners in the VISCED project including ATiT are making an inventory of innovative ICT-enhanced learning initiatives and major ‘e-mature’ secondary and post-secondary education providers for the 14-21 age group in Europe.  This includes a systematic review at international and national levels as well as a study into operational examples of fully virtual schools and colleges. The outputs of this work will be analysed and compared to identify relevant parameters and success factors for classifying and comparing these initiatives. This initiative is open to researchers and policy-makers, all outputs will be published on the VISCED wiki.

VISCED will investigate innovative virtual schools and colleges
