List of international e-learning initiatives

This is the list for initiatives straddling more than one country and promoted by an international agency.

More precisely, an International initiative is a concept which is not in the UNESCO "Virtual Universities" classification scheme but is an extension ot its concept of a National initiative.

It refers to an initiative taken by a supranational political grouping or range of countries in a region - such as the European Union - to set up a programme focussed on e-learning in university-level institutions.

If the initiative involves more than one country but not many then it is not classified as an international iniatiative but as a multinational initiative.

If the initiative involves just one country or a region within that country then it is called a national initiative.

Very often the international initiative will set up a consortium or generate a newly created institution of a unique nature in the nations involved. This leads to some overlap of the UNESCO classifications.
