  • Main advantage of the  metaverse: Distance vanishes: 
  • Travel time:1 minute, travel cost: $0.00
  • You are close to everyone in the metaverse.
The goal of the Virtual Worlds Education Consortium (VWEC) is to bring educators together both to share what has been successful and to tackle obstacles across virtual platforms and communities. Through meeting quarterly, educational communities can collaborate and document progress on best practices for teaching and learning in virtual environments. The initial groups that worked on this idea were The Community Virtual Library (CVL), Nonprofit Commons (NPC), NOVA Community College, Octagon, Rockliffe University, the University of New Mexico, Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable, Whole Brain Health and Thinkerer Selby.
