Coming Soon! Virtual University 3.0!     create a free desk

Virtual University was the first e-learning community on the World Wide Web, and one of the first 500 websites on the planet. We've been here since the beginning. Over the years, we have served more than 500 free and low-cost classes to five million e-learners.

In about six weeks, we plan to launch Virtual University 3.0. Our new website will serve as a portal to hundreds of online classes on every topic under the sun. You'll be able to find and join classes on dozens of websites and manage your e-learning activities from your VU desk. We also plan to resume developing free and low-cost classes in-house. And VU 3.0 will include a new social network (like Facebook, but prettier!) where you can learn and socialize with intelligent people who love to learn.

If you are visiting us for the first time today, please create a free desk. If you already have a VU desk, you will receive an email from us when Virtual University 3.0 launches.

Help us spread the word and share this page with your friends, co-workers, and family.

The site is sponsored by VU and provides a place to network, meet new friends, and participate in online classes. It's a separate website, so you will need to set up a new account, but you may use your VU username and password if you wish. Join free at
