The Virtual University Gazette

Vicky Phillips

The Virtual University Gazette, a free electronic newsletter for distance learning professionals, was launched April 1, 1998. VUG is a monthly news and views digest rather than an academic journal. Each issue of VUG covers new distance learning academic programs, unique industry/university collaborations, jobs and career opportunities, techniques for administering online learning initiatives, and emerging trends and issues related to online learning in universities and the private corporate sector at the adult and continuing education levels. The publication is edited by Vicky Phillips,, amd covers primarily the United States distance learning scene. To subscribe to future issues e-mail the single word SUBSCRIBE to VUG is archived online at Lifelong Learning's Adult Education and Distance Learner's Resource Center at

Note from the editors:

This EURODL-contribution is different and opens up a new publication-line in our journal. It was from the beginning the intention of the journal to link to other organisations, institutions and publications. But now we ask these external bodies to present themselves with a short descriptive article. This might help to involve EURODL-subscribers more directly in the discourse about the content and set-up of the initiatives/journals/organisations described. Follow-up discussion could in a next phase be continued in the discussion section of the journal.
