2017 EDU: Educator commons, freebies, and educators in virtual worlds.

Educator commons, freebies, 
and the educator network in virtual worlds
The Metaverse Tour visited Educator Commons on a recent Saturday.  Educator Commons is intended to support the faculty using OpenSim educational simulations. "My idea for the Educator Commons shop is to focus the educator community on how to build vibrant digital learning centers complete with case study simulations, interactive displays, interactive lecture filming sets, voice-enabled discussion spaces" --Kay McLennan
