Dear debate community,
in 2011 we launched VBates as a new way for millions of potential participants worldwide to experience the wonders of debate.
VBates offered a standardized technology platform that makes debate available to anyone with even basic internet access. It represents an elegant, cloud-based video platform for the 21st century that facilitates debate between youth, classes, schools and even countries.
VBates promotes the opportunity to debate, breaking down barriers of location, race and class while extending the boundaries of online-learning.
After four years of supporting, maintaining and developing this debate tool, unfortunately, we came to a moment where we need to reevaluate this service in a dawn of revamping of the whole Idebate.org ecosystem. Therefore, VBates will not be longer available.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to bring back this service in the future as an integrated part of idebate.org platform.
