The LiNC Virtual School is a Java-based environment that integrates tools for communication, awareness, and collaborative content development.

A collaborative notebook supports cooperative creation of lab reports and other documentation. A list of active users and a notice board provide awareness of who is logged into the system and what they are doing. Synchronous communication is provided by private chat, group chat, and video conferencing. Asynchronous communication is provided by integrated email support and web-based forums.

Features under development include planning tools and integrated web publishing of notebook content.
