Online learning has become a hallmark of modern times; people spend so much time on the internet that it has infiltrated the world’s greatest bastions of education. Every school on the spectrum has given in to the wild demand for online learning, from Harvard to University of Phoenix.

Once viewed as purely supplemental to a traditional college experience, online learning now stands alone as a viable, more low cost alternative. As the popularity of these programs continues to skyrocket, many new innovations are adding depth to online learning. One of the most promising innovations for the potency of online learning is virtual reality education. Online learning has changed the face of education by becoming a supplement to traditional methods. Online learning allows people to educate themselves at a distance, on their own time and at their own pace. Virtual reality education seems to be the obvious solution to this inherent deficiency in online learning.

Research was undertaken by the Flexible Learning Advisory Group (FLAG) in 2012 to identify quality criteria for e-learning.In 2013, FLAG endorsed the following quality model for e-learning. The model complements existing quality and regulatory frameworks for all Registered Training Organisations, by defining particular quality expectations for e-learning more clearly. It concentrates on aspects considered high value, high risk and perceived to be inadequately addressed by current standards for VET regulation. The model will help RTOs to recognise quality e-learning and build a competitive advantage.

KMi Concept Video | Knowledge Media Institute | The Open University. 1994 KMi Virtual Summer School and Future Concept Videos While working towards the creation of the Knowledge Media Institute in late 1994, Marc Eisenstadt, Tom Vincent and Kitty Chisholm, with support from then-Vice-Chancellor Sir John Daniel, commissioned a team working under the direction of Clive Holloway at the BBC to create a 'concept video'.

Their brief was to explain in around 7 minutes what the future of the Open University might be in the rapidly-emerging landscape of new knowledge media technologies. The concept video was itself inspired by a bold (and ultimately amusing) 'near-miss' attempt to give Open University students a taster of these new experiences during a 1994 "Virtual Summer School". This relied on a series of "best of breed" technologies, including the Mosaic web browser, CU-SeeMe video, and 14.4Kbps dial-up modems!

The video sequence includes excerpts from Virtual Summer School, including a segment where it goes horribly wrong, and the full Concept Video. Knowledge Media Institute | The Open University.
