The VRoma Project is first and foremost a community of scholars, both teachers and students, who create online resources for teaching about the Latin language and ancient Roman culture. The project was initially funded by a $190,000 National Endowment for the Humanities Teaching with Technology grant in 1997. The two major components of the project are its online learning environment (MUVE, Multi-User Virtual Environment), which has received several favorable external reviews, and its collection of internet resources. The VRoma MUVE requires logging on as a guest or through your personal character and password, but all the web resources are freely accessible on the internet.
