Website Pamojo Education

Paul Bacsich and Giles Pepler of Sero were present at a "soiree" for experts in e-learning based in and around Oxford, UK. This was hosted by Pamoja Education and organised in conjunction with the Sero VISCED team. This is likely to have been the final VISCED dissemination event in the project's funded period – unless readers of this website know better! All guests got copies of the Handbook (Volume 1) and the brochure. Pamoja Education  is a virtual school based in Oxford. It offers a wide range of online International Baccalaureate courses and has been under way for three years.

Nikos Zygouritsas with other members of the panel at OEB

Nikos Zygouritsas presented the VISCED project on the afternoon of the final day (Friday) of Online Educa in Berlin last week. In a session, chaired by Paul Bacsich, entitled “Distance Learning and the Virtual School”, Nikos described the project and its key case studies. Due to one presenter being unavailable there were just three presentations in the session and this allowed an extensive range of questions to Nikos and the other two presenters at the end. A large number of brochures and all the Handbooks that had been brought vanished off the desk at the end and Paul and Nikos were surrounded by people wanting more information. There were over 60 participants in the audience.
