GVU – Global Virtual University. Quote: “The Global Virtual University (GVU) is an online university for sustainable development, and has a particular objective to meet the educational needs of the developing world. The agreement to start the university was officially signed in September 2002 at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, where the Norwegian Government, the United Nations University (UNU) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) pledged their support and partnership.” [Serious Instructional Technology]
