CVL Hypergrid Resource Library Overview.
Educational resources on the Hypergrid.
The Hypergrid is a network of interconnected OpenSimulator grids. OpenSimulator is opensource software that runs a virtual word. The Hypergrid allows avatars to travel from their home grid to hundreds of other grids. Thus educational places on the Hypergrid are available to any school connected to the Hypergrid.
