Sever acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus outbreak has prompted health agencies to turn to Web-based resources to train healthcare professionals about it. Health organizations worldwide are using online resources, including Web pages and PowerPoint presentations, to disseminate knowledge about the potentially fatal virus. In addition, the outbreak has forced schools in Hong Kong, China to resort to virtual-classroom technology after they were shut down in a bid to contain the epidemic. Free access to virtual classrooms has been offered by the government-funded Hong Kong Education City agency.
