Gardens: Updated the Virtual Worlds' wiki, subject page at WUaS, Curious to see which MIT OCW courses will be taught in virtual worlds, and especially as WUaS and MIT OCW move into other languages, And curious to see which emerge as the best, perhaps Creative Commons' licensed, for INTERACTIVE MOVIE REALISM - for WUaS ... and for building a virtual Harbin in, as well as for ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ... The above, free virtual worlds are for YOU, or anyone, to explore online teaching and learning in
... just updated this Virtual Worlds' wiki, subject page at WUaS,
with a great Wiki about virtual worlds and education ...
jokaydia Virtual Worlds Wiki!: Exploring Virtual Worlds and Games in Education and Training ...
as well as the list of virtual worlds on the main, WUaS, wiki, subject template page -
with these virtual worlds -

See, for example, this Quest Atlantis video ...
There are so many virtual worlds, and these worlds and lists are growing ...
OpenSim and Second Life are still the most group-buildable, and with OpenSim, you can host your own island on your own computers' hard drive.
... curious to see which MIT OCW courses may eventually be taught in virtual worlds, and especially as WUaS and MIT OCW move into other languages ...
I'm also curious to see which emerge as the best, perhaps Creative Commons' licensed,
for INTERACTIVE MOVIE REALISM, and
scalable to brainwave headsets,
as well as 4 large screen panels (60"?) by 4 large screen panels
- for WUaS ...
... and especially for building a virtual Harbin in,
as well as for ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ...
where we call can build virtual worlds, create wikis about this, and
generate ethnography / ethnographic representation ...
- (Again, for planning purposes, this is WUaS’s first year curriculum with MIT professors
and with graduate student instructors facilitating the conference method -
in Google + group video Hangouts -
The above, free, virtual worlds are for YOU, or anyone, at wiki WUaS to explore online teaching and learning in.
