Classes Suspended but Learning Continues
In view of the outbreak of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in Hong Kong, schools and universities have suspended classes and this would affect the normal teaching and learning process.
To assist students to continue learning during the school suspension period, this Virtual Integrated Teaching & Learning Environment (VITLE) platform is provided for free to schools to breakthrough the limitations of physical classrooms. With VITLE, teaching and learning can still continue in virtual classrooms in cyberspace!
This action to counteract the impact of SARS on students' learning is organized by Dr. Alex Fung, Head of Education Studies Department, Hong Kong Baptist University, and co-organized by the Hong Kong Daily News, with the kind support and sponsorships from Cellwise Technologies Limited, Macromedia HK Limited, Microsoft HK Limited, and Powernet Internet Group.
Schools and students are welcome to apply for registration to use VITLE.
