Virtual Worlds Education Consortium

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.

Keep in Touch!

As the educational community has continued to thrive in Virtual Worlds, likely supported by recent events, it keeps coming up that coordinating efforts might be beneficial to all in the educational community.  For this reason, we are reaching out to our educational communities to see if you are interested in joining together with educators of Second Life, and other VWs, periodically to look at common large-scale issues together, to promote communication and support for educational efforts across educational groups and others involved in the design and implementation of educational programs in virtual venues.
