Research & Thought Leadership
Once is happenstance.
Always is a pioneer.
So much has changed since The VHS Collaborative first brought online learning into secondary education in 1996. But one thing remains the same: The VHS Collaborative is still the innovation pioneer in online learning, still contributing to important research, still helping set education standards, still shaping the policy and direction for a future generation of students and educators.
