The Project report is now complete. Stuart will make a presentation at the ASC ILITE conference in Melbourne next week.

The Literature review and the compilation of Endnote references will continue beyond the timeframe (June-Nov) set for this project.




  •  To develop an understanding of web 3D immersive/virtual environments and their prospective application in education for the promotion of interactive learning experiences.
  • To demonstrate this knowledge and understanding by developing a particular area of research interest and formulating a research question.



Literature review

This section is a collection of resources including content from books, journal articles, blogs, wikis and websites that contain information on web 3D immersive/virtual environments to help answer the following questions:


  • What are web 3D immersive/virtual environments?
  • Why were these technologies developed?
  • How are they currently used?
  • Can these be used for educational purposes?


Some suggested reading around the project topic.

Endnote library

This section contains a collection of references to the numerous sources of information on the topic of web 3D immersive/virtual environments with particular emphasis on the educational applications of these technologies. These include, but are not limited to, books, journals, blogs, wikis and websites.   references.htm still have to figure out how to show the exported references as a html page with the same name as the wiki page!


This section is a compilation of past or ongoing projects and relevant practical examples of the use of web 3D immersive/virtual environments in education.

Since technically I am just the facilitator rather than a "contributor" I shall add a comment. I came across this blog page - http://mocozone.blogspot.com/2008/01/institutional-checklist-for-sl-course.html - which provides a useful an "An institutional Checklist" for teaching in Second Life. It might provide a useful way to organise a literature review.

Cheers, Iain

Hi Iain, Ashwini, How're things? (I've just discovered the 'comment' feature)

The 'Khan' framework seems like a reasonable starting place for organising literature/ideas/etc.
Ashwini, through your own exploration of the literature and issues, you might adapt it over time.

Regards, Stuart.
