The opening of a virtual annexe by science centers has given rise to a new genre of learning in web-based education. Seeking to enhance the outreach effectiveness of non-formal science education initiatives among students and the public, these virtual science centers fulfill a useful role in promoting the public understanding of science. The types of content which can be hosted in these sites are discussed. A commentary is also presented on some of the unique issues encountered in this new learning environment, including some suggestions on possible solutions in the light of our experiences.
