The Virtual Learning Tools (VLT) addresses the issue of limited educational opportunities in sparsely populated areas in the Arctic. The aim of the project is to provide inexpensive and flexible educational and networking solution for the Arctic, building on modern technology and growth in Internet connectivity within the circumpolar region. The VLT project approaches distance learning with a new methodology, offering both regional and global users a wide variety of online educational tools to acquire knowledge about the Arctic region. In addition, VLT offers access to the most recent information and material openly released by a number of research initiatives in the north, such as the IPY, SAON and the University of Arctic. The Virtual Learning Tools is a cooperation between the University of the Arctic, Arctic Portal, APECS, ICR and the University Centre of the West fjord. The main product of the VLT project is an open source educational web portal, which concentrates on providing innovative learning tools and access to a wide range of information sources focusing on scientific Arctic research material.
