> The Visible Knowledge Project was a five-year, four million dollar project aimed at improving the quality of college and university teaching through a focus on student learning and faculty development in technology-enhanced environments. With more than 70 faculty from 22 campuses engaged in the scholarship of teaching, the VKP was among the largest research projects in the country on technology and learning, and one of the largest in the humanities, social sciences, and interdisciplinary culture fields.
VKP placed questions about the integration of technology within a broad context of faculty inquiry into student learning and innovative practice. As information technologies spread throughout higher education, they bring with them the potential for transforming the nature of teaching, learning, and educational institutions, in general. (Source)
