Forging Online Education through FIRE (FORGE) is a project bringing the FIRE and eLearning worlds together. FORGE aligns FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation) with the ongoing education revolution. The project specifies development methodologies and best practices for offering FIRE experimentation facilities to learners and to the learning community in general.

The FORGE project has launched an Open Call offering free access to the FORGE tools and processes and guaranteed training and support by the FORGE consortium covering guided training and technical assistance. Moreover, the participants will be acknowledged as associate partners and will receive wide recognition and high visibility through the project’s website.
