Presentation of VISCED at Online Educa Berlin attracts a lot of attention

Wednesday, 5 December 2012
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.

In other news,  Paul was invited to the French stand to discuss virtual institutions with them and also met delegates from Oman, Egypt, Namibia and Austria at their stands to discuss the latest news on virtual schooling in their  countries. Expect updates to many country entries soon!
