Founded in 1995, VU is the oldest e-learning community on the Internet. More than five million learners from 128 countries have attended classes at our virtual campus.

There's an inside joke among programmers: When they say, "It'll be done in a few weeks," it usually means a few months. That held true for the Virtual University website renovation, which we thought would take a few months, and it took more than a year to bring VU into the 21st century!

We're happy to say that the new VU website is up and running. We've moved back to VU.ORG where it all began 20 years ago (yes, it's our 20-Year Anniversary in October!) Please take a few minutes to explore the site, and invite your friends and co-workers to stop by and create a free desk!

Explore Virtual University and learn something new today!

Cool and Free!
