Partners in the VISCED project are happy to announce the availability of summaries of the main project outcome brochure in all partner languages. This summary contains a definition of a virtual school or college along with a description of the prevalence of such schools and colleges in Europe. It then goes on to summarise the main recommendations being made by the partners as a result of their work, many of which are aimed at policy-makers in member states. Finally it provides links and information about the project and where more material can be found. This summary is available in Danish, Estonian, Greek, Finnish, Swedish and Dutch as well as in English.
