World University and School and VIRTUAL WORLD CREATION.
WUaS would like to develop a very easy-to-use, probably Open Simulator-based, virtual world - which is earth-topographically realistic (building on the photo realism of holodecks in SL) - where individuals and end users could host their own islands, regions, etc. on their own computers (perhaps this would even ship with machines), and which would easily network with a variety of virtual world islands, beginning with other Open Simulator islands, as well as Second Life islands - expressly for open, free, teaching and learning classrooms, and idea exchange (voice and text chat), - at both the university and school levels.
A Firefox or Chrome browser add-on for such a virtual world has merit, vis-a-vis ease of use.
Building a virtual world, from the kernel of Open Simulator, would allow World University and School to incorporate both the WUaS virtual hospital and medical school (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Courses#Medical_School_and_Hospital), as well as integrate all the various museums (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Museums) with significant amounts of online content, from around the world, as well as resources on the other WUaS main and subject pages (e.g. wiki-like science laboratories in virtual worlds).
(There's a paragraph on this page about this at WUaS: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University).
