  • Tour 1 :: 25 April - ka:media in OpenSim

    We start our MOOC tours by visiting Ka:Media Language Village in OpenSim on Friday 25 April @ Noon SLT / Pacific Time.

    ScreenshotKamedia’s language Village outlines the efficient combination of a Learning Management System and virtual worlds. The prototype of the language village was presented for the first time on VWBPE in 2013. Since then some improvements and many conceptual changes have been made. The Language Village can be used either as a kind of 3D Tool in your LMS, or your LMS can inworld be used to provide content.

    The Language Village consists of a realistic reproduction of a German city and includes little learning units in the virtual world. The the MOOC tour to our “Language Village” will extend the Sim demonstration and will allow to answer detailed questions.
