The “Engage Your Students with Virtual World Learning Simulations and Games” will focus on how to use the free (or a low cost hosted) OpenSimulator platform to create virtual world and virtual reality learning simulations and games. Attendees will be provided with an avatar to use during the session (and after the session) to login to a virtual world and tour different types of educational simulations and learning games. The session will feature how to guidance on the basics of virtual world set-up for instructional use as well as how to guidance on the creation of screen capture video clips of avatar “actors” (to bring in-world case studies out-of-world and into learning management system or LMS course sites). In addition, the session will highlight how to use a virtual machine viewer to facilitate wider student and faculty access to virtual worlds (including the integration of virtual world logins capability through an institution’s LMS).
