VirtEd is an effort to complement the curriculum taught in the traditional educational setting with virtual curriculum that makes use of the vast potential of the Internet. Its goal is to provide information equity for all students, regardless of disability, geographical location, socioeconomic status, etc..

Most of the units or sites are set up with basic information on a particular topic within a discipline. When the user completes a page, there are in most cases an interactive quiz that is similar in format to the multiple choice format used on many standardized tests. While correct answers are given, no scoring is done. This is intentional as the VirtEd site quizzes are meant to be practices or checks on material read. Activities and links are also part of many of the sites to foster further exploration of each of the topics within the context of the Internet and beyond.
