2019 WW: PEOPLE: 3DWebWorldz introduces human-like avatars in its 2020 upgrade.

3DWebWorldz introduces human-like 
avatars in its 2020 upgrade. 
Updated 1/25/2020

3DWebWorldz tests an upgrade version with human-like avatars that users can modify to give them an individualized appearance. 3DWebworldz is a virtual world on the web.  You go there in your browser: no download, not installing, no registration.  (You can try it out now.)

How do you get avatar?

  • You probably want to be registered so the system will know you when you come back.
  • If the system knows you, it will give you the same avatar when you come back.
  • No point in adjusting an avatar unless it will persist.
 3DWW orientation Part II
  • Part II tells how  to get an avatar and customize it.
  • I would not give students access to this capability immediately. 
  • I would make it a privilege associated with some level of achievement. 
 What you can do here

Orientation II teaches:

  • Customize avatar
  • Manage profile
  • Use radar
  • Teleportation
Some things you can adjust
Click image to enlarge
  • Use the arrow keys to walk around.
  • There are signs with information.   
  • And buttons to change the viewpoint.
Some options for appearance
  • I think most people will take on human shape.
  • Don't sweat the details.  Aim for "good enough."
  • You will know more later and be able to do it better.
I recommend the human shape
