E-learning in a War Zone: NESA Virtual School

After school closures caused by terrorist attacks in Pakistan and India and the war in Iraq, NESA Virtual School (NVS) was set-up as a result of collaboration between Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools and the US Department of State. The original intention of NVS was to ensure that in the event of future school closures, the education of the students can continue. Even without school closure, NVS shows much promise as a tool to enhance the education of the students due to sharing of resources and other features of the web-based software, such as External Links and Discussion Boards. Strong administrative support is required in order to create virtual classrooms for each teacher and to enroll all students in the virtual school. However the benefits of going virtual outweigh the extra effort required.
