There are countless Harry Potter fans who would love to receive their long-awaited Hogwarts acceptance letter in the mail. Hogwarts is the school of witchcraft and wizardry that is the setting for a great deal of the Harry Potter series, written by J.K. Rowling. Now there is a new website, run entirely by volunteers, that sends you an acceptance letter via “electronic owl” and gives you a part of what might be considered the “Hogwarts experience.”
The website offers courses that users (students) can complete to become certified as an expert on all things magic. The students who enroll read essays and readings receive recognition for their work and progress through the courses. The students get sorted into houses, receive a virtual textbook, and occasionally have homework. The assignments have no due dates and all of the courses are free, so it allows students to work through the material at their own pace.
There is a social aspect to the virtual school, as well. Harry Potter fans, or “Potterheads” as they are affectionately referred to, have created chat rooms that serve as dorms. Students can “mill about” the Great Hall and interact with others (virtually, of course) to create a sense of community.
This is a website full of people who love the Harry Potter universe and are eager to learn more about it. To receive your Hogwarts acceptance letter that you have waited so long for, go to www.HogwartsIsHere.com and get started.
