The first FORGE newsletter is out!

It is hard to believe that only a year has passed since our project started given all of the events that we’ve participated in and the extent of our results.

As you will read FORGE has the ambitious aim to transform FIRE into a learning resource – making world class experimental facilities available to students within eBooks. We have already developed a first interactive eBook available from our website and also components, described below, to enable developers to create their own FORGE-based educational resources.

Looking back over the year for me personally the highlight was the Future Internet Assembly in Athens where we led on the session Beyond MOOCs: the Future of Learning in the Future Internet and where the project won the Best Poster prize.

Several FIRE projects, National Research and Education Networks (such as BREN) and large companies (such as Cisco) have already expressed keen interest in our results. If you are at all excited by what you see below then I would urge you to please join us through our Open Call.
