Horizon Lanka Virtual Academy



From the Horizon Lanka Academy website:

The Horizon Lanka Academy of Mahavilachchiya, Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka launched the Horizon Lanka Virtual Academy. This site is done by Sri Lankan students. The lessons are created by students themselves with the help of expereinced teachers here in Sri Lanka and abroad.  We mainly focus on the Sri Lankan O/L (Ordinary Level) and A/L (Advanced Level) curriculum.  [An example of a HLVA-created eLesson is here.]

November, 2008 Update

Building on its experience with funding student-created eLessons at Horizon Lanka, Openworld is now extending "Seeds of Change" offers of microvouchers on a global basis to help underwrite online "work-study" research by students into a range of opportunities for local reforms and self-help initiatives leading to sustainable development.  The resulting video clips and Powerpoint presentations on their findings will be included in future eAcademy toolkits for entrepreneurial schools and for developers of success-sharing free zones.
