NVS provides for each participating school a platform for blended learning, professional development, community communication, and (very importantly) emergency continuity of operations. It also provides for the NESA region a powerful tool for regional and even inter-regional collaborative initiatives, as part of the World Virtual School Network.

NESA Virtual School (NVS) is included in the VISCED 'Virtual Schools in Europe' section of the wiki because of the presence of schools in Greece. The majority of the schools listed by NESA are in Asia and the Middle East.
