The Sakai VRE, together with other elements of the TLRP's electronic network infrastructure, will be more fully described in a forthcoming special edition of the journal "Technology, Pedagogy and Education", to be published early in 2007. This will also describe how some of the projects of the TLRP and the Applied Education Research Scheme have used the VRE in support of their research.
