Virtual Environments Research Group in Education

VERGE logo

The purpose of VERGE is to provide a coordinated journey between the teacher and the student toward learning in a virtual environment that provides opportunities for synchronous collaboration, problem solving, and exploration.

Our guiding premise is that students learn better, online and face-to-face, when they are working with a wise and caring teacher.
