How to get Immersed in virtual worlds
A visit to the Community Virtual Library
The informal online PLC of educators in virtual worlds.

Online virtual worlds suitable for education have been around for over 15 years.   And educators have been exploring their potential.  These user-built worlds let educators build the environment they want and program it to support their objectives.

Education in virtual worlds

  • The key was user-built virtual worlds.  
  • No game rules. No game goals. Building and programming support.
  • Build a world as you want it, program it as you want, use it as you please.
  • Soon the educators began to find each other and form professional groups.
